Singapore Program

Harvard Kennedy School Singapore Program at the Ash Center’s Rajawali Foundation Institute for Asia promotes collaboration in research, education, and outreach between HKS and the Lee Kuan Yew (LKY) School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore. These activities include but are not limited to: joint research projects, case studies, faculty exchanges, policy conferences, and executive education programs.

Lee Kuan Yew School

Building on a public policy program that began in the early 1990s, the Lee Kuan Yew School was officially launched in 2004, dedicated to educating and training the next generation of Asian policymakers and leaders. Its objective is to contribute to the transformation of Asia by raising the standards of governance throughout the region and improving people’s lives. These efforts are led by a distinguished faculty – a diverse community of scholars and practitioners known for excellence in teaching and research in a variety of policy fields.

Collaborative Research Projects

Collaborative projects with a regional focus are especially encouraged. HKS faculty members are welcome to submit proposals to the HKS Singapore Program. Guidelines and information are available upon request from Samantha Gammons.

Lee Kuan Yew Fellows Program

The HKS Singapore Program also administers the Lee Kuan Yew Fellows Program, which brings a group of 20 to 25 mid-career students to campus for one semester each year.  You can learn more about our current class of Lee Kuan Yew Fellows here
