Fellowships to Hawaii young professionals and university students to cultivate a strong knowledge base in the political, security, and economic issues facing the Asia-Pacific area. Participants will participate in roundtable discussions, develop a peer network, and have access to foreign policy experts and scholars.

The Hawaii Asia-Pacific Affairs Leadership Program will help the next generation of Hawaii’s leaders develop a solid knowledge base of the major political, economic, and security issues in the region.

APAL Scholars gain unprecedented access to Pacific Forum’s international network of senior foreign policy experts, emerging next-generation scholars and practitioners, and local community leaders and professionals. Throughout the nine-month program they are invited to Pacific Forum conferences and events in Honolulu that are normally reserved for experts, practitioners, and donors. They also undertake a guided research project, allowing them to explore Hawaii’s connection to the region and speak directly with stakeholders and decisionmakers working on these issues. Additionally, APAL Scholars are given the opportunity to attend a Pacific Forum conference in Asia.

Participants meet 1-2 times a month from September to May for roundtable discussions focused on key regional issues. These meetings usually occur weeknights from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Participants may also be invited to optional breakfast briefings on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Additional opportunities such as volunteering, site visits, and partner events are also part of the APAL experience.

Program participants may apply for a travel stipend to attend a Pacific Forum conference overseas.
