Program Aims

Fostering cross-cultural understanding, cooperation, and knowledge-sharing between America and Asia

The Henry Luce Foundation has been working to deepen understanding and strengthen relationships between Asia and the United States for more than 80 years. In keeping with our founder’s vision, we believe that a more peaceful and collaborative future can be forged by finding common ground across borders and cultures. With an emphasis on the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and ideas, we seek to promote trust and understanding among Americans and Asians and to increase awareness of Asian American experiences.
