Call for Applications

The Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues is recruiting 10 to 12 Georgetown undergraduates to participate in three 90-minute dialogues with Chinese students at leading universities in Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong during spring 2021.

The discussions will be student-led and facilitated by Prof. Dennis Wilder, managing director of the Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue, together with colleagues from Chinese institutions.

Georgetown students who participate in at least two of the three sessions and provide a 500-word blog on their experience for the initiative website will receive a $300 honorarium.

Interested students should send a short statement of interest, CV, and unofficial transcript to by midnight EST on Thursday, March 11. All current full-time Georgetown undergraduates are eligible to apply.
