Invitation #S7015
Dear Robert Franzese,

With another winter break quickly approaching, now is the time to confirm your university’s attendance at the 2015 US-China Student Summit. Delegations from more than 40 campuses across the United States have signed on to represent their schools and their country in Shanghai in May; how will your university get involved?

As you know, international education and cross-cultural awareness are increasingly important to potential employers and graduate programs. The concepts you teach in the classroom will be paramount to your students’ success; now you have the additional opportunity to help them add an invaluable international experience to their resumes!

Watch our video to see how the Summit impacts students!

  • Meet one-on-one with Chinese peers to build networks and improve cross-cultural understanding.
  • Understand the importance of the US-China relationship through hearing from notable American and Chinese speakers.
  • Visit a Chinese school to understand differences in our countries’ educational systems.
  • See firsthand many of the historical landmarks and cultural traditions that have been part of Chinese society for thousands of years.

In addition to the cultural knowledge and immersive experience students will gain during their attendance at the Summit, we are pleased to offer students the opportunity to extend their stay in China for an optional 4- or 8-week internship in Shanghai. Please visitwww.chinastudentsummit.org/internships to learn more.

Time is running out to secure your university’s space for the 2015 Summit and for students to take advantage of available need-based scholarships. WorldStrides can ensure space availability for delegations who sign up prior to the December 15 registration deadline; after this date, reservations will be taken on a space-available basis.
