Graduating seniors and recent alumni:
Do you want to get experience living and working in Asia? If so, you may be eligible to apply for the Luce Scholars Program (https://topscholars.illinois.edu/luce). The Luce is a one-year internship in your field after graduation in Asia or Southeast-Asia, and it is designed specifically for students and recent alumni who are U.S. citizens and who have spent less than 18 weeks in Asia since graduating from high school. For any candidate, even students who lived in Asia as a child or teenager, the Luce eligibility requirements would only count time in Asia since high school graduation toward the 18-week limit.
If you would like to learn more, please join one or both of the following events:
