Flagship Summer Programs in China


Students in the Chinese Language Flagship Program are encouraged to have at least one overseas experience before the required Flagship Overseas Capstone Program (OCP). Students may apply for admission to study at one of the Flagship approved summer programs. Each program offers special advantages for students at varying proficiency levels. Students should work with the director and Flagship staff from their home institutions to identify the best possible academic fit. Limited Flagship funding is available for these approved programs. American Councils for International Education in cooperation with each domestic institution, manages this part of the overseas program.
