Luce Scholars Program, NYU Deadline September 14, 2012

Each year, the Luce Foundation selects 15-18 Scholars to spend a year in East Asia doing an internship in their career field.  Luce applicants cannot apply directly; they must be nominated by NYU, & we are allowed to nominate only 3 students/alumni per year.  We now invite applications from NYU students/alumni who wish to spend the 2013-2014 year in Asia as a Luce Scholar.

Eligibility criteria:
– U.S. citizen
– Must have completed the Bachelor’s degree before beginning the program
– Must not have reached their 30th birthday as of July 1 of the year of entry to the program
– Outstanding academic record
– Evidence of outstanding leadership ability
– Must have a mature and clearly defined career goal in a specific field and must give evidence of potential for professional accomplishment within that field — (i.e. you must have significant career experience already, which typically puts graduating seniors at a disadvantage in this competition.  This is an experiential award, not an academic award.)
– Applications cannot be considered from those who already have had significant exposure to Asian culture or who have a specific career interest in Asian affairs

If you meet all of these criteria and are interested in being considered for nomination by NYU, you must submit your application to my office by Friday, September 14.  This includes the application itself, 4 requisite letters of reference (on paper & signed) & official transcripts, NYU & other.  Based upon the materials you submit on Sept. 14, we will review the dossiers & select our nominees.  I will provide further advisement to the nominees before the applications must be finalized & submitted to the Luce Foundation on November 1.  [NB: This is an earlier deadline than in past years.]
