Bai Xian Asia Institute (BXAI) believes that cross-cultural education is the key to a harmonious world built on mutual understanding, respect, and equality.

Through education programs that empower and inspire scholars in different Asian countries and regions, BXAI seeks to strengthen relationships between the people of Asia, support partnerships between East Asian academic institutions, and cultivate a sense of community and mutual understanding within a changing global landscape.

Our Asian Future Leaders Scholarship Program (AFLSP) provides scholarships for students from Asia to study away from their home country or region at any of our Partner Universities, while  our annual BXAI Summer Program brings together current Bai Xian Scholars for an enriching experience that comprises lectures, discussions, study trips, and group research.  Throughout the year, BXAI also endeavors to connect and engage the Bai Xian family by hosting Virtual Community Events – online activities that include webinars, community building opportunities, and soft skills training workshops.  Meanwhile, the Bai Xian Project Award runs every year and invites both Bai Xian Scholars and Alumni to pitch ideas for short-term projects related to social innovation, intercultural exchange, or East Asia research.  Last but not least, the Bai Xian Alumni Association aims to build a strong alumni community through networking and educational events.

By creating intercultural opportunities for young scholars in Asia to learn from and engage with one another, BXAI’s ultimate goal is to bring up innovators, thought leaders, and influencers who embrace diversity and are committed to promoting peace, regional collaboration, and harmony in Asia and beyond.
