The Asia Foundation Expands China Exchange Program
San Francisco, July 21, 2008 — The Asia Foundation has received support from the Henry Luce Foundation for a three-year exchange program to promote education and dialogue on Sino-American relations. The project will include: 12 master’s degree fellowships for junior staff selected from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to attend the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at The Johns Hopkins University; three study tours to China for a total of 30 American graduate students from Fletcher and SAIS; and three bilateral dialogue events in Beijing for approximately 150 participants.
Through this program, participants from both sides of the Pacific will explore contemporary issues that influence Sino-American relations, including current foreign aid policy, East Asia community building, and the environment, as well as domestic factors that shape Chinese and American approaches to regional and global affairs.
The Asia Foundation has maintained exchanges between China and the U.S. for the past 26 years, and the Henry Luce Foundation’s support allows the program to expand. The first group of Fellows will begin classes in the Fall.
