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. OUR WORK IN ACTION »

Advancing Policy Through Working Groups

By connecting people and their ideas the Foundation’s working groups contribute to solving problems and creating opportunities.  By sustaining that engagement, these programs also lead to better policymaking. OUR AREAS OF FOCUS >>

Mike Mansfield was known for his tendency to listen more than talk, and was highly respected for his sense of bipartisanship and integrity.  These values guide the Foundation’s outreach to opinion leaders and the public through programs that provide informed and balanced perspectives on U.S.-Asia issues.
