China Scholars Program – Introduction to Contemporary China
Program Dates: Mid-August through December 2018 (Tues/Thurs)
Location: Online (details TBA)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: SATURDAY, JUNE 30, 2018 – APPLY HERE
The China Scholars Program (CSP) is an interactive, synchronous online course for high school students in the United States—part of Stanford University’s SPICE Program in Pre-Collegiate Global Learning. Students will explore key issues in contemporary China, spanning politics, economics, social issues, culture, and the arts, and with an emphasis on its relationship with the United States. In real-time “virtual classrooms” with leading scholars, experts, and former government officials from Stanford University and other institutions, students will participate in a rigorous learning experience.
Modeled after SPICE’s long-running Reischauer Scholars Program on Japan, the CSP selects approximately 25 exceptional high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors from throughout the United States to engage in a one-semester, intensive study of contemporary China, with an emphasis on how the United States and China have influenced and understood each other in recent history.
Coursework includes weekly reading and writing assignments, culminating in an independent research project. Final research projects will be printed in journal format, and students are also required to lead two presentations on China at their home schools or local communities. Students who successfully complete the course will earn Stanford Continuing Studies Program credit and a Certificate of Completion from SPICE, Stanford University
