Connecting People & Ideas to Advance Mutual Interests in U.S.-Asia Relations

On January 14, 2016, the Mansfield Foundation announced the newest class of Mansfield Fellows.  This is the twenty-first group of Fellows to have been selected for the Mike Mansfield Fellowship Program, which was established by Congress in 1994 to build a corps of U.S. government officials with substantial Japan expertise.  The selection of this new group brings the Mansfield Fellowship network to one hundred and forty Fellows, representing twenty-seven U.S. agencies, commissions and the U.S. Congress.  The twenty-first class includes representatives of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Department of Labor, both firsts for the Fellowship Program.  Please click here to read a press release about the new Mansfield Fellows in English and here to read the Japanese version.
