Launched by NFP organization Israel-Asia Center in 2011, Israel-Asia Leaders Fellowship develops and invests in the next generation of leaders in Israel-Asia relations, aiming to build a bridge between exciting ventures and exciting regions.

The program focuses on Asian and Israeli students who really show potentials to be leaders in that field for the future. The part-time program which is an add-on to Asian students’ existing university studies in Israel, provides them with the high-level contacts, skills and support network to build professional partnerships with Israel in their fields.

The program will introduce the fellows to leaders across different sectors of Israeli society, coordinate innovation field trips and basic skill workshops. Moreover, the project will get the young leaders access to top-level business networking events and march them through top-level professional mentors in their fields.

Graduates of the program have gone on to set up their own Israel-Asia business ventures, head up the Asia/Israel operations for Israeli/Asian companies, set up Israel-Asia NGOs, and work for Israeli embassies in Asia.

The application for the project, which is due July 14,  is now open for a new batch of fellows during 2014-2015. Please click here for further details or here for a video about the fellowship.
