United Airlines and US-China Strong Offer China Flight Discounts for Students

The US-China Strong Foundation is a nonprofit organization that seeks to strengthen US-China relations by investing in a new generation of leaders who have the knowledge and skills to engage with China.

Dear Friends,

I am thrilled to announce that, through our partnership with United Airlines, American students will now have access to discounted roundtrip travel between the United States and China!

US-China Strong and United Airlines partner to give American students access to discounted roundtrip travel between the United States and China!

US-China Strong and United are both committed to ensuring that all Americans, regardless of their financial resources, have the opportunity to study abroad. We often hear stories of young people who are eager to study abroad but can’t afford the airfare. Some study abroad programs have to cut back on the number of scholarships or the amount of financial aid they can offer because airfare is too expensive. By reducing the financial burden of traveling to China, it is our hope that we will see greater diversity in study abroad.

The US-China relationship is the most important and consequential bilateral relationship in the world. In order to “get it right,” we must ensure we have a next generation of China-savvy leaders who can collaborate and compete with Chinese counterparts. And those leaders must represent the diversity of America, our greatest strength. This investment by United will help us achieve that goal.

This special offer is available to ANY American student, 24 years or younger, regardless of financial need. Students must have an existing Mileage Plus account or open a new account, where they will also be able to earn mileage towards free airfare in the future. To take advantage of this program, please call US-China Strong’s official travel agent Carroll Travel at (202) 543-8118 or information@travelroom.com. Office hours are Monday-Friday from 9:00am-6:00pm EST. Please include your last name and “US-China Strong” in the subject line. United can connect cities across the U.S. – via many of its U.S. hubs – to Beijing, Chengdu, Hangzhou, and Shanghai year-round and to Xi’an during the summer season. Buy your tickets today and embark on the experience of a lifetime: Study Abroad in China.

Again, we are deeply grateful to United for offering this unique offer to American students — our future leaders.

Happy travels!
