The Chinese Overseas Flagship Internship Program is administered by the American Councils for International Education. The internship component is designed to enhance each participant’s language ability and professional experience in their field of interest. Participants work closely with the Chinese Flagship Program Internship staff in Nanjing to find and secure a substantial internship with a company, organization, or institution. Participants are expected to conduct their internships in a Chinese-based setting using their high level language skills.

A participant’s eligibility to continue the internship component is contingent upon successful completion of the academic program/direct enrollment studies and positive remarks from his/her mid-program evaluation. For more information, please see the below document.
