Project Pengyou announces its Leadership Fellows Program at Harvard University on October 7-10, 2016.
Current students at a U.S. high school, university or community college who have lived or studied in both the U.S. and China are encouraged to apply! (http://www.projectpengyou.org/leadershipfellows)
Fellows will be invited to participate in an intensive four-day Leadership Summit at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA to meet other like-minded young leaders, build unique community organizing skills and learn about cross-cultural leadership in the US-China context. With support from the Ford Foundation, Project Pengyou will cover lodging, food and training costs at Harvard University for all Fellows. A number of travel stipends will also be provided.
Leadership Fellows go on to establish a Project Pengyou Chapter at their school promoting cross-cultural inclusion, constructive dialogue and U.S.-China exchange. Since 2014, the preoject has mobilized a grassroots network of over 40 campus chapters across the United States to advocate for constructive exchanges between American and Chinese people.
The Project especially seeks fellows from under-represented regions in the south and midwest, but in general are looking for exceptional students who are passionate about their US-China experience, interested in serving as a leader in their community, and who seek to build a brighter future for the US and China.
Details about the Leadership Fellows program and application process are online at http://www.projectpengyou.org/leadershipfellows and also detailed below. The deadline for applications is August 19, 2016.
