East Coat Students Win Chinese Language Scholarship

Two students at Northeastern University have won scholarships to study Chinese language and culture in China for eight months. They had previously been studying Chinese business translation, and because of their work and effort, they have been chosen to continue their studies abroad.

Chinese Scholarship Awarded Through the Fulbright-Hays Group

The scholarships from the Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad program are awarded through the U.S. Department of Education, but students can sign up for the scholarships through their individual schools. The winners are young men, one a sophomore and the other a junior at Northwestern University in Boston, Massachusetts.

During their stay in China, they will work on their Chinese translation skills, study in a Chinese college, and intern at Chi­nese companies within the Xi’an High-Tech Devel­op­ment Zone. The Northwestern students won the scholarship along with fourteen other students in the New England area. They have already participated in a summer immersion program called Dia­logue of Civ­i­liza­tions.

Skills Beyond the Language

 

During the program, they not only learned more about the Chinese language and culture, but they also demonstrated leadership skills and the ability to express their thoughts clearly and articulately.  The language program director at Northwestern described the students saying, “While they are busi­ness stu­dents, they are curious about all aspects of Chi­nese cul­ture.

They didn’t just focus on the Chi­nese busi­nesses and ignore the social and cul­tural his­tory. I think that’s what makes them really stand out.”
