US-China Strong Foundation Student Ambassadors

Each year, the US-China Strong Foundation selects 100 American students to serve as ambassadors at the grassroots level. These students represent the diversity of America, one of our nation’s greatest strengths. They have studied in China and have a deep understanding of Chinese culture and history. As ambassadors, they not only share their transformative China experiences, but also play a vital role in furthering the Foundation’s mission.
