    Preferences for CHIN 417

    Summer

    • Overview

      • Flagship Students are strongly encouraged to study abroad after CHIN 314. Students who do not advance their Chinese during the summer between CHIN 314 & CHIN 417 will find themselves far less proficient than their classmates who do. In some cases, students are unable to keep up and eventually leave the program or drop down a level.Important: if we are giving you a scholarship, or if you are receiving any summer scholarship from the university, you must
          1. apply to Study Abroad by their deadline in early March, starting well in advance of the deadline in order to gather all necessary materials (some programs, such as Princeton in Beijing, do not have a formal relationship with our SA office and will not require that you apply. In turn, you will not need to pay any SA fees but will not earn any credits)
          2. complete the online Financial Aid summer scholarships form, which becomes available at the end of March or beginning of April.

      • Recommended Programs

        • Below is a list of programs that we recommend, based mainly on the proficiency gains attained by past participants:

          Princeton In Beijing – You CANNOT receive Flagship scholarship funds toward PIB. It has no affiliation with our Study Abroad office, and therefore, you cannot be registered or have scholarships processed through the Financial Aid office, which is a requirement of Flagship. Only attend PIB if you are interested and not eligible for, or interested in, Flagship scholarship funding this summer.
