The Asia Leadership Fellow Program (ALFP) has closed its chapter and we will no longer be accepting applications for the program. For details of the program including fellow profiles, please visit the ALFP official website below.
The Asia Leadership Fellow Program (ALFP) is a joint program of the Japan Foundation and the International House of Japan (I-House) launched in 1996 for the purpose of creating a network of public intellectuals deeply rooted in and committed to civil society in Asia. Between 1996 and 2018, the ALFP offered select leaders in Asia, individuals active in a broad range of endeavors extending beyond the parameters of their respective nations, the opportunity to reside for two months in Japan and engage in collaborative activities and dialogue as ALFP fellows. While continuing to deepen their thinking and expand their activities, these fellows have come to form a network connecting civil society in Asia. For over two decades, a total of 139 fellows from 17 Asian countries and regions participated in the program.
