The East-West Center was founded by Congress in 1960 and is affiliated with the University of Hawaii. It conducts a wide variety of research and educational programs of global significance, but is particularly concentrated on issues confronting East Asia. As cadets, you are allowed to apply for the East-West Graduate Degree Fellowship. You will live in residence at the East-West Center while pursuing a two-year Master’s degree in the program of your choice at the University of Hawaii. Importantly, this is not just a language or area studies program. Asia faces a wide range of issues that require excellent scientists and engineers. The East-West Center has ongoing research on environmental change, population and health, education, and Pacific islands development that could be of interest to a broad cross-section of the cadet population and has relevance to every major offered at the Academy.
