FELLOWSHIPS: Asia Pacific Leadership Program
Asia Pacific Leadership Program (APLP)
We Can Do readers will note that this program is not specifically targeted to people with disabilities. I encourage people who would need disability-related accommodations, such as interpreters, Braille, etc., to contact the APLP coordinators directly to inquire. The application deadline is December 1, 2008, and the fellowships will begin in August 2009.
The East-West Center is pleased to announce new fellowships for the Asia Pacific Leadership Program for 2009-10. Entering its eight year, the Asia Paciﬁc Leadership Program (APLP) is the center of excellence for leadership education in the Asia Paciﬁc region. The APLP is a graduate certiﬁcate program combining the development of regional expertise with the enhancement of individual leadership capacity. Based at the East-West Center in Honolulu , Hawaii , the program has created a network of dynamic leaders in 48 countries who are helping to build a peaceful, prosperous and just Asia Paciﬁc community. All participants receive an APLP Entrance Fellowship valued at approximately $15,000.
The Asia Pacific Leadership Program seeks outstanding individuals with proven leadership experience or high leadership potential from across the Asia Pacific region, North America and beyond. All participants have at least a Bachelors degree with the majority having graduate degrees as well. At least 20 countries are represented in each cohort. APLP Fellows come together from all walks of life, including areas as diverse as government, business, NGOs, health sciences, media, monastic orders, and education.
APLP participants will gain broad regional perspectives, become knowledgeable about the critical challenges facing the Asia Pacific region, and be trained to exercise leadership and promote cooperation. The APLP empowers leaders with the knowledge, skills, experiences, and supportive community needed to successfully navigate personal and regional change in the 21st century.

The East-West Center is an education and research organization established by the U.S. Congress in 1960 to promote better relations and understanding among the peoples and nations of Asia, the Pacific and the United States through cooperative research, education, and dialogue on critical issues of common concern. Funding for the Center comes from the U.S. government, with additional support provided by private agencies, individuals, foundations, corporations, and the governments of the region.
I found this announcement via the mailing list for the Global Partnership for Disability and Development. This announcement also was posted earlier at the Cambodia Jobs blog.
