Would you like to broaden your professional perspectives in Asia?

Often called the “Rhodes of Asia,” the Luce Scholars Program provides young Americans with a 10-month experience in Asia designed to sharpen their perceptions of Asia, of America, and of themselves. It’s hard to get and fun to do. The heart of the enterprise is the internships that are arranged for each scholar based on his or her interests, background, qualifications, and experience.

Each year, Colorado College submits the names of two candidates for this exciting opportunity. Holly Ornstein Carter ‘ 85, Leon Waxer ‘ 90, Chessie Thacher ‘ 03 and Edward Carlson ‘ 06 were all selected as Luce Scholars.

The program, funded by the Henry Luce Foundation, is directed at college seniors and recent alumni under the age of 29 with high GPAs and documented leadership potential. The program is not for people with extensive experience in Asia. Application deadline is October 16, 2009.
