History and Background:

WHO? WHAT? WHERE? WHEN? WHY? HOW? History and Background 1934 : Yale Foreign Mission reincorporated as the secular Yale-in-China. 1951 : In the wake of Liberation and the New China, the last Yale-in-China representative is expelled from Changsha Rounding out the first century > 1901 : The Yale Foreign Mission is founded by recent Yale graduates to foster cultural understanding between east and west. < How does the application process work? 1906 : Yali Middle School is established by Yale-China in Changsha, Hunan Province.

History and Background:

WHO? WHAT? WHERE? WHEN? WHY? HOW? History and Background < Building the foundation 1956 : The Bachelor program begins again in Hong Kong, thanks to a new partnership with New Asia College. 1975 : The new name “Yale-China Association” is adopted, reflecting the evolution of our mission from just “Yale-in-China” to two-way exchange. 1980 : The Bachelor program returns to mainland China. With a growing number of female participants, the title “Bachelor” fades over the following years and is eventually replaced by “Fellow.” Present : The Yale-China Teaching Fellowship continues to hold a central position among the many education, health, and arts programs of the Yale-China Association. Guidance from staff refreshes the program every few years to maintain maximal relevance to changing conditions in China and the United States. Visualize your fellowship >
