The Zhi-Xing China Fellowship is a three-week academic trip to China that aims to inspire and build connections between the next generation of global leaders in the US and China. Jointly implemented by China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE) and Asia Society, this Fellowship is a highlight of U.S-China People-to-People Exchange, championed by the US Secretary of State and the Chinese counterpart.
Annually, we select 50-60 outstanding student leaders, with equal representation from the US and China. Together, they will attend seminars, lectures, field visits, as well as work together on a final capstone project on their findings. These tailor-designed seminars and lectures offer diverse perspectives on China’s culture, history, society, innovation, and political and economic systems. A variety of carefully curated field visits provide interactive and hands-on opportunities for fellows to develop a deep understanding of China.
The Fellowship will take place in China on July 21-August 7, 2020 and cannot be deferred. US participants may need to arrive in China 1-2 days prior to the start of the program.
The Fellowship covers US participants’ international airfare, travel, and activities expenses in China, short-term travel insurance and visa fees. Participants are responsible for other incidental and personal expenses.
