Yale (English) Fellows


Since 1909, Yale-China has been awarding fellowships to recent Yale graduates to teach English at Chinese secondary schools and universities. Yale-China Teaching Fellows immerse themselves in a Chinese community for two years, joining Chinese colleagues in the endeavor of educating members of the country's next generation and forming lifetime bonds of friendship. Yale-China Fellows spend their time in China at one of four host institutions. They receive a salary from their host schools, free housing, basic medical insurance, and Chinese instruction.
