Designed to inform policy leaders and opinion shapers, develop the capacity of next generation leaders, foster dialogue and cooperation on cutting-edge issues, and/or facilitate the exchange of ideas through educational exchanges, National Committee programs engage leading citizens in both the United States and China. While some programs select participants through an application process, most are not open to the general public.

    Public Intellectuals Program

    The National Committee is pleased to announce the selection of 21 new fellows for the fifth round of our Public Intellectuals Program (PIP) and the renewal of a generous grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York that makes the program possible. Launched in 2005, PIP is dedicated to nurturing the next generation of China specialists who, in the tradition of earlier China hands, have the interest and potential to venture outside of academia to engage with the public and policy community.

Did you know…?

When the National Committee programmed Pittsburgh into the itinerary of a first-of-its-kind delegation of Chinese involved in the production of children's radio and television in 1983, we received a great deal of "Why Pittsburgh?" push-back from the Chinese. But we knew that any delegation looking at children's productions wouldn't be complete without a visit to Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. After watching a taping of the show and talking shop with Fred Rogers (already changed out of his signature cardigan and slippers), the group was completely won over by him, as well as by the beauty and friendliness of Pittsburgh.
