Mike Mansfield Fellowship Program

Established by the U.S. Congress in 1994 to build a corps of U.S. federal government employees with Japan expertise, each year the Mike Mansfield Fellowship Program places a select group of U.S. officials in postings in their Japanese counterpart agencies. With the selection of the twenty-third group of Fellows in 2018, more than 150 federal government officials have now entered the Mansfield Fellowship Program. VISIT SITE »

Strengthening Government & Expert Networks

U.S. success depends on understanding and collaborating with our partners in Asia, a region that, in Mike Mansfield’s words, “…is where our future lies.”  The Foundation builds and sustains networks of elected leaders, researchers, and policy experts, networks that encourage cooperation on common interests and contribute to continued, constructive U.S. engagement in Asia.
