Future Leaders Program for 130 students from across Asia

As part of the Asian Future Leaders Scholarship Program (AFLSP), a platform sponsored by the Bai Xian Asia Institute (BXAI) to mobilize young people toward positive activism and good citizenship, Waseda hosted the second annual BXAI Scholars Summer Program from August 3-24.

The three-week program, held at Waseda’s main campus in Tokyo, brought together AFLSP Scholars from across Asia to create constructive dialogue, mutual understanding and lifelong friendships. The Summer Program 2016 centered on the mission of building bridges across cultures, which matches the commitment of Waseda, one of the six Anchor Universities of the AFLSP, to produce leaders by promoting peace and progress through intercultural and international education. The program was coordinated by Waseda’s School of Political Science and Economics.
