Asia Global Institute is recruiting Student Ambassadors for its AsiaGlobal Fellows Program.

The AsiaGlobal Fellows Program

Organized by Asia Global Institute at the University of Hong Kong (HKU), the AsiaGlobal Fellows Program is a global leadership development initiative.

The AsiaGlobal Fellows selected are promising mid-career professionals from around the world with diverse backgrounds. They include policy makers, policy advisors, business and civil society leaders who share a common interest in global policy issues, have demonstrated strong leadership potential, and are committed to making a positive impact on society.

A central goal of the program is to sharpen the leadership skills of the up-and-coming leaders and broaden their global outlook, exposure and experience, particularly from Asian perspectives.  The program also seeks to build a network of fellows around the world who will stay in touch and sometimes work together in areas of common interest.  

The 13-week, inter-disciplinary program consists of lectures by academics, policy makers and business leaders, leadership skills training workshops, visits to local institutions and facilities, and study trips to Asian cities. Activities are organized to maximize both participation and interactions among the fellows. The fellows will be living on HKU campus during the program from August 19, 2019 to November 15, 2019, and the fellows will be arriving Hong Kong a few days before the program starts.
