Wanxiang Fellows Program (China)

China: Sustainability, Green Technology, and Renewable Resources (one week pre-program in Japan at Ashikaga University)

June 8 – July 14, 2024 (dates tentative)

Supported by a generous grant from the Wanxiang Corporation, the University of Illinois at Springfield joins its sister campuses in Urbana and Chicago to offer a unique opportunity for undergraduates to learn about the challenges and opportunities related to sustainability, green technology, and renewable resources in China in the unique cultural and natural environments of the urban landscapes of Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou. Participants will begin the program with a one week program at Ashikaga University in Japan, known for its renewable energy program and rich cultural heritage.

The program will be limited to five and possibly six students from UIS.
