Chinese US-China Fulbright Program Alumni 

“My Fulbright experience in the United States was of happiness, abundant harvests, and fond memories, though not without regrets. I am certain that it will play an important part in my future research work and intellectual life…The most memorable experiences were with my American friends.”- Niu Ke, VRS Alum, Peking University 

American US-China Fulbright Program Alumni

“…this [Fulbright Scholarship] year was profoundly wonderful on every level – educational, transformational, eye-opening, and intensely fascinating.  We all came away from the year feeling stronger and smarter, and proud of our ability to acclimate to a very different world… As Fulbright alumni, all of us see ourselves, our country, and China in new ways, and have built a treasured network of dear Chinese friends and colleagues.– Amy Werbel, US Fulbright Lecturer 

“The Fulbright program is a fabulous program. It offered me an opportunity to meet and interact with established scholars from a variety of research expertise with different cultural backgrounds.  So it is a great honor to be a Fulbright scholar.” – Li Cuiyun, VRS Alumna, Harvard, Inner Mongolia University

“I was deeply impressed by the core value of education of the universities in the US, i.e. it is more important to gain something from learning than achieving something in the end. Sponsored by the Fulbright Program, I did visiting scholar at Duke Law School during academic year 2008-2009.”  – Fan Mingchao, PhD Alum, Duke Law School, Shanghai  University of Politics and Law

“My Fulbright journey seems more adventurous and challenging than others… I would not exaggerate [saying] this experience as Amazing and Unbelievable… Thanks to the Fulbright FLTA program to endow me with an opportunity to explore myself by the exploration of the world; and, I’m loving it.”– Gui Yi, FLTA Alumna, Mississippi
