An interesting program for anyone who loves Chinese culture and wants to visit China this Summer/Fall.
The program has run for two years now, and it will run in Beijing, Shanghai, and Xi’an this July or September (sounds like one could pick the location), and all expenses are paid by the Ministry of Culture.
The VPYS (Visiting Program for Young Sinologists) program aims at facilitating research with China-based academic, cultural, educational institutions, groups, enterprises and scholars, as well as helping scholars achieve academic excellence and international influence. The Ministry of Culture of the People’s Republic of China (MOC) and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) jointly host the Visiting Program. High level institutions such as Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Chinese National Academy of Arts, Palace Museum, National Museum, National Library, National Art Museum of China, Peking University, Tsinghua University and many renowned Chinese authors and scholars will also participate in the program.
Translators, writers and other experts on Chinese culture aged 30-45 can apply for this program and come to China for a 20-day-long visit. After reading the attached information, feel free to email your applications and address any questions to Ms.Chen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
