The Public Intellectuals Program Fellow Database is a free-to-use directory of China experts and specialists.

The database is intended to connect journalists, policymakers, educators, and the interested public with China specialists who can provide insight, background, and deeper knowledge about China and U.S.-China relations.  

Our Public Intellectuals Program (PIP), launched by the National Committee in 2005, is dedicated to nurturing the next generation of China specialists. Through unique opportunities such as mentoring, media training, and networking, PIP fellows are better equipped to increase Americans’ understanding of China. 

Fellows are open to requests for media appearances and interviews, speaking engagements, guest lecturers, and similar requests. Contact information for each PIP fellow is available by searching the database. Download the PDF version of this database here
