Illinois Wanxiang Fellows Program
LAS 199 CHINA: Sustainability, Green Technology, and Renewable Resources
Locations: China - Beijing, Hangzhou, Shanghai
Program Dates Abroad: June 22 – July 21, 2019
The Illinois Wanxiang Fellows Program, sponsored by the Wanxiang Group, is a competitive fellowship program open to University of Illinois undergraduate students at the Urbana, Chicago, and Springfield campuses. The program offers a unique opportunity for students to study environmental issues and renewable energy in China while gaining exposure to Chinese language and culture.
The Wanxiang Fellows Program at UIUC is administered by the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies, in partnership with LAS International Programs and in consultation with a committee of interdisciplinary faculty advisors. UIUC Faculty advisors will select the fellows and serve as academic mentors throughout the program. UIUC, UIS, and UIC faculty and staff chaperones will accompany fellows from all three campuses during the summer study in China. The majority of the program costs are covered by the Fellows Program.
Fellows will participate in 3 orientation sessions (two seminars and one site visit) with faculty advisors in Spring 2019, complete their four-week study in China in Summer 2019, and present individual or group research reports at the Illinois Wanxiang Fellows Symposium in Fall 2019.
