East-West Center offers study tour US, Asia Pacific

Journalists from the United States and Asia Pacific can apply to participate in a study tour.
The East-West Center is offering the New Generation Seminar (NGS), a two-week intensive educational, dialogue and study tour travel program.
The program is developed around a thematic focus and provides participants with an opportunity to strengthen their understanding of Asia Pacific-U.S. developments and challenges, build a regional network and to become leaders with a more international perspective.
The first week of the program is held in Hawaii. In discussions with East-West Center researchers, other experts in the Hawaiian community and one another, participants are introduced to key regional policy issues such as security, international relations, economics, energy resources, population, health and environment. The second week involves field travel to either the U.S. or Asia Pacific for exploration of the program theme.
The New Generation Seminar involves 10-12 participants ages mid-20s to late 30s, approximately six to eight from Asia Pacific and three to four from the U.S.
The deadline for applications is July 19.
