China Studies Institute (CSI) Zhi-Xing
China Academic Impact Fellowship Program allows faculty to learn from
scholars, business leaders, and education administrators about Chinese
civilization, history, language, business and education.
The China Studies Institute (CSI) offers college and university faculty members
with limited or without prior experience in Chinese studies to learn about China,
both past and present. The institute encourages participants to develop strategies
for incorporating Chinese studies into courses on their campuses. The Institute
involves three weeks of intensive seminars, lectures, readings, and cultural
activities related to Chinese history, culture, literature, government,
business, language and education. Institute faculty will include scholars, administrators,
representatives from the local Chinese community, and government officials.
The three week program is held in China (tentative cities are Shanghai, Xi’an
and Beijing). CSI Fellowships are available to cover most of the costs of the
Institute for each participant. While attending the program, participants are
housed in hotels. Because of the intensive nature of the program, families
cannot be accommodated and are not permitted to accompany the participants.
