Their research covers a broad range of topics related to the provision and governance of public goods in China. The fellows were selected from a pool of applicants from both the U.S. and China.

The New Generation China Scholars Program is a three-year program generously supported by the Ford Foundation.

The 2014-2015 program will start accepting applications in late summer. If you are interested in applying to be a New Generation China Scholar, please keep an eye on the “Latest News” section of our website for an upcoming call for proposals.
