Asian Future Leaders Scholarship Program

The Asian Future Leaders Scholarship Program (AFLSP) support up to 100 scholarships each year to high-caliber students from Asia to study away from their home country or region at leading East Asian universities.

In its mission to create intercultural opportunities for the next generation of leaders, the AFLSP partners with 6 universities in five cities, where scholars are welcome to pursue their choice of an undergraduate, master’s degree or exchange program (program offerings vary by university).  The scholarship offers each student up to US$25,000 per year or a total of US$50,000 per scholar, which may be used towards university tuition, housing, and personal living expenses.

Scholars also participate in the annual BXAI Summer Program, a fun and enriching experience where they have the unique opportunity to explore important global topics, engage with guest speakers and fellow scholars, and be inspired by the culture and people of the host country.  Bai Xian Alumni are invited to take part in the Bai Xian Alumni Initiative Award (AIA), a program that encourages them to work together in teams across campuses and borders to develop socially responsible action plans that address critical challenges faced by Asia’s communities, environments, and economies today.

With effect from the 2020-21 academic year, the AFLSP will operate under a new structure. Our new university network will span five key cities in East Asia, namely, Beijing, Hong Kong, Kyoto, Shanghai, and Tokyo, and our partnerships will be consolidated to six in total, including: Hitotsubashi ICS, Kyoto University, Peking University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Waseda University.
