Due to the risks associated with large number of student participation under the current threat of Global Pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus, we are cancelling the 11th Annual Undergraduate Research Day Event originally scheduled for Thursday April 30, 2020.

China Exchange Program

The China-US Exchange Foundation (CUSEF), in partnership with the Chinese Ministry of Education. The China-US Exchange Foundation announced sponsorships for 400 students in CBC Members Districts to visit China for 2 weeks. Sixty out of the 200 scholarships have been used, meaning there are ample spots for some York College students. The only thing a student traveling on the program has to pay for is airfare to China. Travel within China, food, room and board, tickets and everything else is covered by the Chinese government.

This study-abroad experience contains a diverse offering of educational activities and excursions taking place over two weeks in Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai. Students will have the opportunity to attend lectures on Chinese history and culture, US-China relations, and China’s economic development. They will also participate in cultural activities such as a tour of the Summer Palace and the Great Wall, a visit to the Xixi Wetland Museum, workshops on Chinese painting and Chinese culinary art, and much more. The final program itinerary will be distributed during the scholars’ orientation session in Washington, DC. Two chaperons approved by the CBCF will accompany each cohort throughout their travels and will serve as the students’ primary supervisors and points of contact.
