Illinois Wanxiang Fellows Program
GLBL 298: Sustainability, Green Technology, and Renewable Resources 

Locations: China - Beijing, Hangzhou, Shanghai
Program Dates Abroad: TBD

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 majority of the travel and program costs will be covered by the Wanxiang Fellows Program.

The Wanxiang Fellows Program at UIUC is administered by the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies, in partnership with LAS Global Studies 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 a series of orientation seminars with faculty advisors in Spring 2024, complete their four-week study in China in Summer 2024, and present individual or group research reports at the Illinois Wanxiang Fellows Symposium in Fall 2024. Program dates and requirements are tentative and subject to change.
