We are delighted to announce that Ty Hopp, Asian Humanities major, graduating in June 2016, from UCLA has been selected as one of the Yenching Scholars in the second cohort at the Yenching Academy of Peking University.

Mr. Hopp will join other outstanding graduates from around the world who will spend the 2016-2017 academic year enrolled in an English language Master of China Studies program. Specifically designed to promote interdisciplinarity in the study of contemporary China, the Yenching Academy underlines the value of thinking about its development from both Chinese and international perspectives. As a fully-funded residential program at China’s top university, the Yenching Academy builds bridges between China and the world by gathering young people who show promise to lead and innovate in their fields.

The Yenching Academy of Peking University aims to build a platform for China-oriented talent, and to shape a new generation of global citizens with a nuanced understanding of China and its role in the world. Situated in the heart of Peking University, the Academy is ideally positioned to take full advantage of the academic talent and cultural resources made available to Yenching Scholars on and off campus.
