We are pleased to announce a new partnership with East-West Center (EWC) to provide 10 of our Student Ambassadors the opportunity to contribute to the Center’s “Asia Matters for America” website for the duration of their yearlong term as Student Ambassadors.

Selected USCS Student Ambassadors provide 3 seasonal essays responding to prompts soliciting insights on their experiences—and lessons learned— while studying abroad in China. Each week a different student’s essay will be shared on the EWC Asia Matters for America website.
