The John H. McArthur Distinguished Fellowship

The John H. McArthur Distinguished Fellowship was established by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada) to honour the late John H. McArthur, an exemplary Canadian, world-renowned business educator and former Chair of the APF Canada Board of Directors. Dr. McArthur, a native of Burnaby, British Columbia, was an Officer of the Order of Canada and Dean Emeritus at Harvard Business School.

Supported by the creation of a $2-million fund and a growing number of generous donors, the Distinguished Fellowship is awarded to an accomplished Asia Pacific thought leader who will conduct actionable research and elevate the work of APF Canada.

The recipient of the Distinguished Fellowship will make a significant contribution to APF Canada and global development through: policy-focused research, speaking engagements and workshops, published opinion pieces, and networking among experts and specialists on Canada-Asia relations.

The APF Canada executive in consultation with the John H. McArthur Distinguished Fellowship Selection Committee and the APF Canada Board will determine the selection of successful candidates. We invite you to support us in this historic initiative commemorating the remarkable legacy of John H. McArthur.
