About YES

In November 2023 in San Francisco, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced an important new initiative, inviting 50,000 young Americans to China on exchange and study over the next five years. The initiative provides a nurturing environment for young people to move and see the world. The “Young Envoys Scholarship”(YES) program came into being to support this powerful initiative.

Words from Students

Faria Nishat Shama     Bangladesh 

Participating in the ZJUI's Smart City Module of ZJU 2023 SDG Global Summer School was instrumental in developing my collaborative and interdisciplinary skills as an industrial design engineer. 

As an international student from Bangladesh studying in China, I felt a deep sense of pride to be part of the program, particularly in light of the adoption of SDGs at the UN Sustainable Development Summit. This achievement underscores the importance of global collaboration in achieving sustainable progress and highlights the crucial role of innovative solutions like smart city concepts in addressing urban challenges.

The LEAP program helps me adapt to Chinese society more smoothly. It's very interesting to see how we could get used to the new habits like paying by Alipay and smartphone. I also learned a lot during the lectures, like about fintech development in China.


I had an opportunity to join the C-Walk day trip to the China National Silk Museum in Hangzhou with other international students. It was a great chance to get to know each other better and create good memories together. I especially liked the tie-dye experience- it was fun, and we could also create a unique souvenir to keep with us for a long time. I hope there will be more C-walks that enable us to experience Chinese culture.
