The Yenching Global Symposium is a fully-funded event that brings together people from different fields and across generations with a common interest in China. Held on Peking University’s historic campus in Beijing, this event invites prominent Chinese and international scholars with a noted passion for China in their work and research, along with leading professionals from a wide range of fields.
The conference generally takes place for 3 days in March and will feature keynote speakers, panels of academics and practitioners, interactive activities, site visits, and cultural immersion programming. Eligible delegates will receive free round-trip travel to and from Beijing, along with accommodation and meals for the length of the conference. Applicants must be under the age of 30 by the start of the conference (under the age of 32 if from a country where military service is mandatory).
