SCCEI fosters students’ curiosity, intercultural communication, passion, and academic achievement through a myriad of avenues. Our faculty and senior research staff work with students on independent and collaborative projects giving them hands-on experience in and out of the field. Our engagement opportunities span from participating in cross-cultural exchange programs to co-authoring publications for an unparalleled research experience.
Our faculty teach rigorous courses throughout the academic school year at Stanford University sharing their research, passion, and knowledge with students across disciplines. Past courses taught by our faculty directors include "Macroeconomics of China," "The Chinese Economy," and "The Economic Development of Greater China: Past, Present, and Future."
We support students' research each Fall and Spring through SCCEI-funded research grants. We also connect students to funding opportunities at Stanford and beyond.
Our faculty and research staff regularly co-author papers with students. We support and advise students as they conduct graduate-level research, analyze our data, and co-write and submit a paper ending in a publication with their name on the byline.
Young Researcher Workshops
Our weekly series brings together young scholars doing research on China and provides them with a platform to present new research, exchange ideas, and make connections.
