Yale students awarded two-year teaching fellowships in China

Six graduating seniors, one recent graduate, and one student from Yale School of Public Health have been awarded teaching fellowships by the Yale-China Association.  

The students who have been named as teaching fellows are Benjamin Healy, Yunyi Chen, Kevin Su, Symba Nuruddin, Andres Valdivieso, and Mollie Korewa from the Yale class of 2016; and Jessica Hahne who will graduate from Yale School of Public Health this year. Joining them in the field will be Sebastian Monzon ’15 B.A.

Fellows are chosen from a large and competitive pool of applicants for their cross-cultural agility, teaching ability, academic achievement, and commitment to community service.

During their two-year assignments in China, the new fellows will teach academic writing and oral English courses, and lecture on American history and culture to university and high school students and teachers. They will also study Chinese language and culture, and carry out community engagement projects.

The Yale-China Association, a private, nonprofit organization located on the Yale campus, has worked to promote mutual understanding between Chinese and Americans through teaching and service for over a century. The Yale-China Association has programs in education, health, and the arts.

The Yale-China Teaching Fellowship is open to Yale graduating seniors and to any Yale graduate for up to five years after graduation. Graduate students are also eligible to apply.
