Asia Exchange Scholarships
Asia is, by far, the most populous continent in the world. Its economic, political and cultural importance is growing rapidly and the importance of Asia is only going to increase in the future. Studying abroad in Asia will provide you with more chances for success both at present and in the future.
Asia Exchange wishes to encourage students to study abroad in Asia. We award scholarships that cover the tuition fee of a study abroad program in one of our Asian partner universities for one semester.
