Flagship Summer Programs in China


Many of the Flagship-approved overseas summer programs have been affected by the recent coronavirus outbreak in Mainland China. The current status of each program is noted below. Please also refer to each program's individual website for additional information and updates.

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.
