Young Leaders Understanding China Fellowship

Collaborating with Gaines Center, this fellowship offers Gaines Center students opportunity in the summer to experience China through a two-week intensive study tour to China. Fellowship recipients will travel to Beijing, Xi’an, Shanghai and Suzhou to engage in high level discussions with Chinese university students, business leaders and community members. In addition, there will be field trips to the cultural and historical highlights.   

If you will not be earning academic credit during your time in China, you must register with the Office of International Health, Safety & Security. 

Final acceptance cannot be confirmed until students have registered with the appropriate office. 

As part of the registration process, all students will be enrolled in UK’s international travel medical insurance & evacuation coverage. The cost of this coverage ($10.50 per week) will be billed to their student account.
