Asia Pacific Week 2013 Call for Applications

Asia Pacific Week 2013 – June 30-July 5, 2013

ANU’s Asia Pacific Week brings leading experts on the Asia Pacific region together with 100 of the world’s top students to engage in a series of dynamic discussions and events focused on developments, trends, and challenges in the Asia Pacific Region in the 21st Century.  Asia Pacific Week 2013 will be held June 30 through July 4, 2013.

From lectures by ANU faculty largely regarded as among the world’s leading experts on Asia and the Pacific to exercises and panel discussions that enable participants to gain a greater understanding of the realities of policy making in an imperfect world, Asia Pacific Week delegates have the opportunity to learn from and interact with a broad cross-section of academics, Australian political leaders, and journalists. Interested students have the opportunity to present their research on related panels during the week although such is by no means required to attend as a delegate.

The Pan Asia Institute is once again delighted to offer up to four travel grants to IU students selected for participation. Grants will cover airfare, accommodations, meals, and insurance expenses. See below for application details.
