Freeman Asian Scholars Program

2013 Freeman Scholars

Since 1995, the Freeman Asian Scholars Program has provided full scholarships for outstanding students from 11 countries and regions in East Asia to earn a bachelor's degree at Wesleyan. Founded by Houghton "Buck" Freeman '43, Doreen Freeman, Hon. '03 and Graeme Freeman '77, the program seeks to promote cross-cultural understanding between the United States and East Asia. Freeman Scholars come from the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. More information about the Freeman Asian Scholars Program and how to apply is available here

The Freeman Asian Scholars Association (FASA) fosters a long-lasting sense of community between current scholars and program alumni, as well as the Wesleyan community as a whole. FASA holds events throughout the year--including potluck dinners, bake sales, and career panels featuring program alumni--to build an even closer community, and to raise scholarship funds for international students outside of the 11 countries in the Freeman Asian Scholars Program.
