Georgetown University U.S.-China Student Fellows Program

June 30, 2017
Georgetown University’s Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues is accepting applications for its 2017-2018 student fellows program.
Inaugurated in 2016, the U.S.-China Student Fellows Program aims to promote student-to-student dialogue among U.S. and Chinese university students around critical global issues. The 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.
Fellows will receive a $2,500 stipend and travel and accommodations to attend the Washington, D.C. and Beijing meetings, where they will have opportunities to meet with leading scholars, senior officials and business leaders.  They will provide at least four short essays/blogs for publication on the initiative’s website between September 2017 and July 2018.
Established in 2016, Georgetown’s U.S.-China Initiative is a university-wide platform for research, teaching, and high-level dialogue among U.S. and Chinese leaders from the public sector, business, and the academy that addresses common challenges facing the global community. Student dialogue that engages future leaders from both countries is a key component of the Initiative.
Eligibility: The fellows program is open to U.S. and Chinese citizens who will be enrolled full-time in undergraduate programs at U.S. and Chinese colleges and universities during the 2017-2018 academic year. 
Application Process: The following materials must be submitted to by June 30, 2017. 
  • CV
  • a 500-word personal statement
  • a two-minute video interview (link or attachment) that describes the applicant’s background and interest in the program
  • contact information for three references
  • a 750 to 1,000-word essay written in English that addresses the following question: “How should China and the United States better work together to benefit the global community? Provide a concrete suggestion drawn from one of the following issue areas: economic and social development; business and trade; global health and humanitarian issues; peace and security; or the environment.”
Decision: Decisions will be made by a Georgetown faculty committee by August 15. Only complete applications will be considered.
