Asia Pacific Leadership Program

The Asia Pacific Leadership Program (APLP) is the center of excellence for leadership education in Asia Pacific and a signature program of the East-West Center. The program links advanced and interdisciplinary analysis of emergent regional issues with experiential leadership learning.

APLP fellows leave the East-West Center with an expanded regional perspective. They are knowledgeable about the societies and issues of the Asia Pacific region and empowered to exercise leadership and promote cooperation in a variety of cultural, geographical and institutional environments.  In short, APLP alumni are navigators of change.

The APLP is a 8 month program with a 4-month residency requirement in Hawaii.  All APLP Fellows live on the East-West Center’s campus in Honolulu from August – December.

The residential period in Honolulu involves intensive, experiential training, coursework and living and working within a diverse community. Content focuses on three areas: 1) understanding regional trends; 2) leadership development; and 3) professional development.


  • Bachelor’s degree – applicants must have at least a 3-year bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from an accredited U.S. College or University or from a recognized institution of higher learning abroad.
  • Equivalency is determined by the University of Hawaii.
  • At least 5 years of work experience.
