US-China talks aim for 100,000 US students to study in China

US-China talks aim for 100,000 US students to study in China

What is the 100,000 Strong Initiative? It's a commitment that aims to have over 100,000 Americans studying abroad in China over the next four years. This is a great objective and will prove to provide an additional element to the already diverse relations in place between the US and China. Through students and regular citizens, relations have the potential to prosper as both sides will benefit.

Through encouraging direct contributions to insititutions of education, the State Department partners with the private sector to allow the funding of exchange programs, study abroad programs and other avenues that supply students with opportunities to study in China. This initiative works to strengthen educational institutions and their international programs so that they can expand and provide more opportunities to students. If students want to study at a school/university in China, there should be no walls preventing them from doing so. This 100,000 strong initiative is a tribute to making that possible.

Both governments, China and US, want more students to study in China! People-to-people interactions are the future of Chinese-American relations. Exchanges are the most effective way of championing this idea and turning it into a reality. In fact, the Chinese government is offering a total of 5,000 scholarships annually to American students who study in China, meaning that their in-country costs are covered!

There are many opportunities to learn more and commit to studying in China. Learn more about the organizations that are helping to make this a reality through exchange and study abroad programs.
