China-America Student Conference


The first China-America Student Conference (ChASC) will convene in Virginia and Washington, D.C. from August 6-22, 2020. Selecting up to 40 college and graduate students, with an equal number representing each country, ChASC 1 will follow the theme of "Peace through trust, friendship, and mutual understanding".

Up to 40 college and graduate students, with an equal number representing the People’s Republic of China and the United States of America, will have the unique opportunity to engage in academic, cultural, and professional exchange during the two-week program. They will participate in lectures, seminars, discussion groups, networking events, and cultural activities alongside their peers.

Throughout the conference, delegates are to discuss, explore, and collaborate on several pressing bilateral and global topics with specific relevance to both the US and PRC. Delegates will then present their joint solutions to experts and the general public at the conclusion of the conference.

ChASC seeks to achieve a diverse delegation, and all majors and academic levels are welcome to apply. The official language of the conference is English. No prior experience with Chinese Studies or Chinese language is necessary.
