U.S.-China Student Fellows

U.S.-China Student Fellows

The U.S.-China Student Fellows Program is a platform to promote student-to-student dialogue among U.S. and Chinese university students around critical global issues. 

Inaugurated in September 2016, the U.S.-China Student Fellows program features a cohort of eight to ten young leaders, selected from top U.S. and Chinese colleges and universities. Over the course of an academic year, fellows participate in dialogue through in-person meetings, a web-based platform, and networking opportunities.

The first cohort, which focused on the theme "Challenges of Globalization," met in Washington, D.C. in October 2016 and again in Beijing in May 2017. In addition to the group discussions, they had opportunities to visit relevant government organizations, think tanks and academic institutions in the host cities.

In August 2017, the second cohort of the student fellows was selected to participate in the 2017- 2018 program under the theme “Risks and Opportunities in an Evolving International System.” The first meeting of the group took place in Washington in September 2017 followed by their second meeting in Beijing in June 2018.
