L.Z. Yuan Fellowship in Media and International Affairs

The L.Z. Yuan Fellowship in Media and International Affairs is named after the late Lun-Zun Yuan, who initiated the Foundation’s program with China and served with the Foundation for over four decades. Prior to joining the Foundation in 1954, Mr. Yuan was a journalist; the L.Z. Yuan Fellowship reflects his conviction that the media plays an important role in international affairs. The fellowship offers young Chinese journalists an opportunity to gain a better understanding of key issues and concerns in international affairs, particularly those relevant to U.S.-China relations. The award supports participation in a course on U.S. foreign policy and international affairs, followed by a specially-tailored month-long affiliation with an international affairs organization and/or a series of meetings with members of the policy and media sectors.
