Japan Travel Program for U.S. Future Leaders Selects Fellows for 2011
In 2009, The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP), in collaboration with the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA), created the Japan Travel Program for U.S. Future Leaders. The goal of the student travel fellowship is to foster a new generation of leaders in the United States who are interested in achieving a greater understanding of Japan and its role in global affairs, as well as engaging in dialogue with their overseas counterparts in Japan. Fellows are graduate students selected from APSIA's U.S. member schools and the third cohort will travel to Japan in August 2011 for a 10-day program.
