Yenching Global Symposium welcomes applications from applicants with strong leadership potential and a readiness to participate in nuanced, interdisciplinary discussions on questions surrounding China and ‘Shared Renewal: Recoupling East with West’.

The Yenching Academy’s flagship event, the Yenching Global Symposium (YGS), is a continuation of this mission. Hosted at Peking University every spring, the symposium comprises engaging lectures, panel discussions, and interactive sessions addressing both China’s impact on the world and the influence that the world has on China. Each year, the symposium features prominent Chinese and international speakers across a wide range of fields, including both scholars and leading professionals. These leaders of today will share their insights with their potential counterparts: 200 students and young professionals from around the world with a noted passion for China in their work and research.
