In addition to the student exhanges available through the Pan Asia Institute, you may wish to consider many of the other programs available to enhance your understanding of and experience with Asia.
Asia Pacific Week
The Australian National University’s Asia Pacific Week (http://asiapacificweek.anu.edu.au/) is an interdisciplinary conference aimed at high-achieving students and young professionals from around the world who have an interest in Asia and the Pacific. The conference examines significant and controversial issues facing the region, its place in the world and how it is shaping the globe, and challenges myths and misconceptions regarding the Asia Pacific region. Asia Pacific Week provides delegates with access to the ANU's unrivalled expertise in the study of the region and the outstanding resources available in Australia's capital. As a delegate you will have the opportunity to not only hear from peak experts, but to engage in interactive panels, debates and simulations. The next generation of Asia-Pacific specialists leave with a network of friends and contacts from across the globe.
Applicants need to be university students currently undertaking a Bachelors/Honors/Masters/Ph.D, or young professionals. All overseas delegates who attend the Asia Pacific Week conference will have their food covered for the entirety of the week and will receive free accommodation on campus at the Australian National University. The Pan Asia Institute provides support for economy-class airfare and incidentals up to a maximum amount determined annually by the Institute. We try to fund as many student applicants as possible each year, but cannot guarantee all applicants will receive funding in a given year. Please contact the Pan Asia Institute for more information.
This year, the Australian National University’s annual international conference, AsiaPacific Week, will bring together 80 high calibre young delegates from around the world, to engage in thought-provoking panels, discussions, workshops and social events.
You will be hearing from and working with an amazing line-up of leading scholars, policy makers and organisations, on a variety of topics to do with the dynamic and evolving Asia Pacific region.
Applications will open in mid-March.
Additional Learning Opportunities
Through the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific's In-Country Programs, students have the opportunity to live, study, and work in intensive study abroad programs in:
- East Timor
- Thai-Burma border
(Note: program availability is subject to conditions on the ground within individual countries.)
Lasting four to six weeks from July - August and January - February, ANU's In-Country programs are open to undergraduate and graduate students alike. For further information regarding available opportunities, contact the Pan Asia Institute at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) is a consortium of the Big Ten Universities plus the University of Chicago. Through the provision of shared, online courses, the CIC CourseShare program provides students at participating schools with the opportunity to enroll in classes not normally offered by their home institution. Students pay tuition to their home institution and thus do not incur additional expenses to enroll in a CIC course. Many Asian language courses are available via CourseShare.
ANU and IU students interested in exploring the possibility of enrolling in CourseShare courses should contact email@example.com.
The Freeman Indonesia Internship Program provides an opportunity for American and Indonesian undergraduate students to intern together at an Indonesian non-profit organization from June through August each year. Administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE), all program related costs are covered by IIE and a stipend to cover basic living expenses is provided.
Interested students should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. Applications are due in February.
