About HPAIR :
The Harvard College Project for Asian and International Relations was founded to create a forum of exchange for students and young professionals to discuss and learn about the most important economic, political, and social issues facing Asia. Since 1991, HPAIR has organized 55 conferences in 12 different host countries, touching the lives of more than 32,000 students and young professionals.
Conferences have drawn many top-tier political leaders such as former President of the Republic of Korea Kim Dae-jung, Crown Prince of Perak Raja Nazrin Shah, Finance Minister of the Republic of the Philippines Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao, and President of Singapore S. R. Nathan. The former Foreign Minister of the Republic of Korea and the current Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon has spoken at an HPAIR conference.
HPAIR has been a dream for me since the past two years and being selected to this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me. I do not want financial hurdles to stop me from attending this conference.
The Harvard College Asia Conference is truly going to serve as the gateway for my dreams and is definitely going to be a door for my future endeavors in the field of Science & Technology and Social Welfare.
