The University of Chicago Center for East Asian Studies congratulates Lewis Page and Kiryl Puchyk for being selected as Luce Scholars.
Under the Henry Luce Foundation, the Luce Scholars program is aimed at a group of highly qualified young Americans in a variety of professional fields. It is unique among American-Asian exchanges in that it is intended for young leaders who have had no prior experience of Asia and who might not otherwise have an opportunity in the normal course of their careers to come to know Asia or their Asian counterparts. The program provides stipends and internships for young Americans to live and work in Asia each year.
Lewis Page will travel to India and work for The Caravan, a magazine based in New Delhi. For more information on Lewis Page, click here.
