Outside Internships

South China Internship Program

Under a new grant from the Ford Foundation, the Hong Kong America Center–-a non-profit consortium of Hong Kong universities-–is announcing the South China Internship Program (SCI), a national competition for 20 American undergraduates to participate in low-cost, high-quality "tandem internships." The twenty American undergraduates will team-up with twenty Chinese university students to spend eight weeks together in summer as interns in companies and NGOs in the booming Pearl River Delta of south China.

The intern teams will work together on joint projects for their host companies. Inspired by the 100,000 Strong Initiative, HKAC is looking for young Americans with strong academics who are highly motivated to explore their career potential in China. Some knowledge of the Chinese language is preferred.
