Education was the original mission of the Yale-China Association at its founding in 1901, and that tradition continues to this day through a variety of programs. The most well-known of these programs is the English Teaching Fellowship, through which hundreds of Yale graduates since 1909 have taken on two-year teaching appointments in China. Over the decades, we have continually updated our programs to adapt to changing conditions in China and in the United States, but at its core our work has always remained true to the values of service, learning, and understanding.

In China

Our Education work in China centers on the Teaching Fellowship: our institutional partners, our Fellows, their students, and the work they accomplish together. From there, short-term programs branch out to broaden program impact, particularly exchange programs during the academic year and exchange-model service internships in the summer.

In the United States

Yale-China's Teaching Fellowship now includes Chinese Fellows who are working in schools in New Haven and, beginning in fall 2015, in Louisville. These Fellows now serve as the anchor for Yale-China's education area outreach programs for American students. These activities highlight the bidirectional sharing of culture that is central to Yale-China’s mission.

In The Works

Yale-China is honored to be resuming an institutional partnership that has its roots in the early twentieth century as we launch a new fellowship program with Central China Normal University in Wuhan, Hubei Province. Named the Guizishan Fellowship, this program is meant to provide opportunities for deeper, self-directed engagement with China for individuals who have already established a foundation of cross-cultural competence. Applications for the second cohort of Fellows will open in the fall, with a due date of February 15, 2016.
