The China Education Initiative

Receive this through a mailing list that Bryan Chong sent to Cornell Malaysian Association members. This could be an opportunity that you can volunteer, and make an impact to others through educational initiatives. 

The China Education Initiative was established under the auspices of the Ford Foundation, Princeton University and Tsinghua University.  An innovative non-profit seeking to end education inequity in China, CEI works at the forefront of China-U.S. relations as the first and only program to pair elite Chinese and American university students in a long-term service initiative.  CEI is the first nonprofit of its kind to receive accreditation from the Yunnan Provincial Government.  CEI works in partnership with Teach For America and its global Teach For All network, and operates under the strategic guidance of McKinsey and Company.

Working in collaboration with Teach for All, Teach for America's international affiliate, CEI offers the opportunity for outstanding seniors from top-25 universities in the United States and China to serve as fully-sponsored teachers in rural China for one and two year fellowships.  The application deadline for the next round of fellowships (beginning this summer) is February 10 (early deadline) and March 10 (regular deadline).  All living expenses are covered by CEI for the Fellows' time in China, and all Fellows receive an additional stipend.  Additional information can be found at
