David Rockefeller Fellows: Asia Pacific

David Rockefeller Fellows: Asia Pacific

The Mission

In March 2013, The Commission’s Executive Committee voted to create a Fellows program in each region – Europe, Asia Pacific and North America and invite the Fellows to plenary and regional meetings for a term of three years  – both to honor the Commission’s founder and to benefit from the views and experiences of a generation of young leaders.

Each regional Group manages its own selection process. For general information about the selection processes click here. The initial group of Fellows from North America, Europe and Asia Pacific attended the April 2014, 2015 and 2016 plenary meetings. The Commission seeks David Rockefeller Fellows who are 35 years or younger. Fellows selected in any given year  will begin attending meetings at the following year’s  plenary meeting.

The Commission has set aside a limited amount of funding to support the travel of David Rockefeller Fellows to meetings as necessary, and will also require regular attendance at both annual plenary and regional meetings. All Fellows  must be citizens or permanent residents of a   country  in the region against whose quota they will count.
