Fellows 2018


“What I love about the program is a good mix of different ways of learning, including lectures, executive training and research on specific topics, with a balance of theoretical and practical content. The components of the course are really interesting and stimulating! The AsiaGlobal Fellows Program is very focused on Asian issues. If you are interested in the region, that’s definitely a very good program for you.”

-          Bruna Mara Liso Gagliardi, AsiaGlobal Fellow 2018


“The 13 week program gives us a very holistic immersion into the topics and issues we are analyzing. It gives us a lot of time to reach out to various thought leaders to understand the issues from different perspectives, and complete the research on a specific topic.”

-          Ira Paulo Pozon,  AsiaGlobal Fellow 2018


“The best thing you can gain from a program like this is the network and friendship you would gain. After the 2018 cohort, twelve of us from all over the world have all become very close friends.  I think the friendship will stay with us for life.”

-          Vera Kobalia, AsiaGlobal Fellow 2018


A total of 12 outstanding individuals from around the globe have been selected for the 2018 cohort. These 12 AsiaGlobal Fellows have already demonstrated strong leadership potential and are up-and-coming influencers in politics, policy-making, business and civil society.  They share a common interest in a range of global issues and Asia-related policy matters, and are committed to using their talents and what they learn from the Program to make the world a better place.
