LIASE Scholarship Announcement - Asian Studies and the Environment

Caitlin O'Donnell

The Bard Center for Environmental Policy in New York State is pleased to announce the availability of new Henry Luce Foundation Scholarships for students from East Asia (China, Japan or South Korea) to complete a two-year Master of Science degree in Environmental Policy or Climate Science and Policy starting August 2014

The LIASE Scholarships (Luce Initiative for Asian Studies and the Environment) provide a full tuition waiver in the first year, and at least 50% of tuition in the second year. Students are responsible for travel costs, and for expenses for room and board. 

LIASE Scholarship students in the CEP program will participate in an annual conference featuring undergraduate and graduate research on Asia and the Environment with students from across the northeastern United States, as well as a conference on Asian Environmental Policy to be held in Seoul Korea during the summer of 2015.

Bard will award one two-year LIASE Scholarship to a qualified applicant each year for the next three years. LIASE Scholarship applicants must be citizens of one of China, Japan or South Korea, and must have a demonstrated interest in environmental policy in their region.  Applicants for the LIASE Scholarship should, in addition to a regular application, provide a one-page letter discussing their research interests in Asian environmental policy.
