The U.S. Foreign Policy Colloquium (FPC) is an exclusive four-day program designed to provide 75 of the best and brightest Chinese graduate students studying at colleges and universities from across the United States a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the complex forces that shape American foreign policy and inform the U.S.-China relationship. The 2017 FPC will run from Tuesday, May 30 to Friday, June 2 (participants will return home the morning of Saturday, June 3).
Held in Washington D.C. at The George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs, the FPC gives participants the unique opportunity to interact with key players in the American foreign policy arena, including current and former Administration officials and members of Congress, as well as representatives from academia, think tanks, media, business, lobbying groups, and the military, among others. The National Committeeuses its deep connections, cultivated over the past 50 years, to provide participants rare access into some of the capital’s most important foreign policy-making institutions, such as the Department of State and the National Security Council, where they meet with individuals responsible for crafting and influencing policy.
- We have limited this year’s FPC to a capacity of 75 students in order to provide attendees with more opportunities for direct interaction with speakers and allow for more small-group work. Interested students are encouraged to apply early.
- The application process will open on Wednesday, March 15.
- Accepted applicants will be required to pay a $200 participation fee (food and lodging will be provided). Applicants who apply by Monday, April 10 will receive a $50 discount.
- Travel stipends available for those who qualify.
