Be a Part of HSYLC
The eighth annual Harvard AUSCR Summit for Young Leaders in China (HSYLC 2013) is a program that is held, simultaneously, in Beijing and Shanghai. As HAUSCR’s flagship program, HSYLC 2013 will continue to serve as an intense forum for cultural and intellectual exchange and as an opportunity to cultivate leadership skills in talented Chinese high school students. This program aims to stimulate academic curiosity, and at the same time, broaden students’ horizons to the world beyond their own.
With China Asset Management Co., Ltd. (“ChinaAMC”) as the official partner, each HSYLC conference recruits around twenty five Harvard undergraduates to create and teach a curriculum for Chinese high school students. Around three hundred students are selected from among thousands of diverse applicants to participate in this unique academic and cultural experience per location. HSYLC has long received extensive media attention throughout China for its mission of fostering “leadership, scholarship, citizenship and entrepreneurship” in students of both countries through a combination of education, advocacy, and cultural conversation.
HSYLC aims to gather potential Chinese leaders and give them an environment in which they are challenged in every way possible, through seminar classes, team building missions, and conversations with each other and Harvard undergraduates. HSYLC also invites prominent figures in the US and China to speak with students. The rich resources that HSYLC is able to offer to Chinese high school students expand their visions, deepen their understanding and increase their appreciation for their own culture.
Thanks to the official partnership with ChinaAMC for both the Shanghai Summit and the Beijing Summit, HAUSCR is able to institute a need-blind admissions process for Chinese high school students and offer full financial assistance to all who need it. This extends the opportunity to attend HSYLC to Chinese youths of all different backgrounds. HSYLC 2006, 2007, and 2008 each hosted three hundred students from high schools across China.
