The Ford Foundation funded the HKAC for three years to develop summer internships for American and Chinese undergraduates who live and work together in businesses in coastal south China. We collaborated in summer 2013 with the United International College (UIC) in Zhuihai to organize 15 “tandem internships” for 30 students in Guangzhou and Shanghai.
Located in the dynamic Pearl River Delta, the so called “workshop of the world,” this internship program will give you rare access to Chinese and joint venture companies and other organizations where you can learn by direct experience how the Chinese language and culture actually work in everyday life in the 21st century. SCIP offers an immersion experience in China that will amaze you and test your abilities to adapt and flourish in new situations. This is not a China program for the faint-hearted, nor a romantic sight-seeing cruise in fantasy China. SCIP is a real encounter with Chinese people in their places of work and play. You will discover how creative young people navigate within the spaces between China and the West recently created by rapid economic and social development, especially through China’s participation in global economic systems since entering the WTO in 2000. You will make friends for life. You will know a new place as your own.
The SCIP is really a series of one-on-one friendships between Chinese and American university students who will spend eight weeks working together in major joint venture companies on the booming cities of China. They will host pairs of interns, one American and one Chinese over six to eight weeks. These projects should be useful to the host company, engages the talents of the students, and creates unique learning opportunities for the Sino-American team.
Because the Ford Foundation has helped to fund the SCIP, the fees will be low, when compared with market-based programs to China, and the competition for places in it will be high. We want to bring a diverse group of young Americans who are creative, culturally sensitive, and committed to learning with their Chinese partners from this rare cross-cultural experience in China.
