Henry Luce Foundation Renews China Young Diplomats Program
The Henry Luce Foundation is supporting the second phase of a longstanding program providing master’s degree fellowships and U.S. study tours for nine emerging leaders from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs; two-month internships in China for nine master’s degree candidates from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies; and five-month travel grants to China for three assistant professors to pursue research for a planned publication. The innovative project, administered by The Asia Foundation, works to improve mutual understanding and enhance prospects for greater cooperation on global issues, such as foreign aid policy, humanitarian intervention, and climate change.
The new program will expand and increase opportunities for Americans to visit and study and work in China, and builds on more than 30 years of Asia Foundation programs on U.S.-China relations. The Young Diplomats Program alumni network now includes 86 Chinese diplomats and dates back to the early 1980s.
