The Asia Institute Continues Partnership with APSA

The Asia Institute announced its continued partnership with Americans Promoting Study Abroad (APSA – to promote the importance of global education and inspire more American youth to study in China. Together the two organizations create opportunities for the next generation of American leaders to develop enhanced cross-cultural understanding and gain valuable international experience.

APSA brings deserving public high school students to study in Beijing on full scholarships. Students are competitively selected from across the U.S. and take part in a 5 week intensive program which focuses on language acquisition, cultural and community engagement, and career and leadership development. During the program, students visit leading companies, NGOs, the U.S. embassy, and meet with American professionals working in China. These opportunities allow students to see where the study of Chinese language can take them in their future careers. Since 2008, APSA has brought nearly 400 American public high school students on full scholarships to China.

Bradley A. Feuling, Chairman and CEO of the Asia Institute stated, “The Asia Institute fully supports the mission and vision of Americans Promoting Study Abroad and the passion the APSA team brings to their meaningful work. Through our support of APSA, we hope that more Americans will gain valuable and life changing experiences by studying abroad in Asia.”

2016 marks the third year of partnership between the Asia Institute and APSA. Jennifer De Rose, Executive Director of APSA notes, “It is a pleasure to continue our relationship with the Asia Institute and further our goals of empowering today’s youth through transformative global education programs”.

APSA is currently fundraising $50,000 to support their upcoming summer program. To give the gift of global education and provide more youth with the opportunity to study abroad, please donate today:
