The College Board is pleased to announce the 2013 Chinese Bridge Delegation, a weeklong program in China to help educators start or strengthen their institution’s Chinese programs and partnerships. Highlights include school visits, cultural activities and educational workshops. Leaders from K-12 and higher education institutions are invited to apply for this unique educational trip to China as guests of Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters (Hanban).

The delegation provides an opportunity to:

  • Visit Chinese K-12 schools and postsecondary institutions, meet with Chinese educators, observe classes and interact with students
  • Establish meaningful partnerships with Chinese education institutions and network with U.S. colleagues
  • Attend presentations on best practices and gather resources to build and support Chinese language and culture programs
  • Experience China firsthand and marvel at the rich traditional culture set against stunning modern development

Dates

Who is eligible?

Selection priority will be given to:

  • K-12 district administrators, school leaders, and other education decision-makers actively seeking to develop new/expanded Chinese programs. Selected participants are expected to be actively involved in, and able to speak about, their institution’s efforts to build or expand a Chinese language and culture program.
  • Higher education scholars and administrators with professional and/or research links to Chinese language and culture.

Multiple applicants from the same institution will be considered but each applicant is required to submit an individual application.

  • International travel insurance
  • US passport application fees

  • Chinese tourist visa fees

Do I need a passport?

    There are NO Chinese students at Bryant, except maybe for one! Check the ATS Reports!!! This is Astoria, NOT Flushing. Having a Greek, Spanish, Bengali, Punjabi program makes sense. Is she really serious?

    Dwarka is an individual who has “delusions of grandeur” living in a distorted reality, typical of someone who has a serious mental illness.

    Definition of “a schizophrenic”: One who may believe that they are more than what they are in other ways. They often believe that they have power over others, and will sometimes intimidate others to exercise that power. They believe that everyone will bend to their will no matter what, and those few people who are intimidated into bending to their will are proof to them of how much power they have over others. Those who do not bend to their will often incur their wrath.
