The program, which identifies promising young leaders for a yearlong experience of working in Asia, is designed to enhance the understanding of Asia among potential leaders of American Society. Seventy-five top universities and colleges in the United States are invited each year to nominate up to three candidates per campus, with a total of 15 to 20 Luce Scholars selected from the pool.
