2023 Summer Program Applications

SDCF is excited to announce that we will be running The 8th Greater China Region Summer Program in Chinese Studies for 2023! This will be our first year conducting the program both in person and with an online viewing option, with participation from both scholars and key opinion leaders.

Given the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, which had imposed health and travel constraints on everyone, the SDCF team conducted our 5th, 6th and 7th Summer Programs in an online “virtual” format. This year, we will attempt a hybrid online and offline version with physical participation subject to the quarantine requirements imposed by the relevant government(s) at the commencement of our 8th Summer Program.

Conditional offers to attend in person in Hong Kong will be granted to applicants with outstanding scholastic and KOL sta- tus. As in past years, we have lined up a number of world-re- nowned lecturers, each with their specialised focus on different aspects of Chinese philosophy and culture. Our lecturers will be supported by our program academic and management team, who will assist in making the lectures and other program con- tent to be as exciting and enriching as possible.

Judging from the indications of interest that we have received so far, we look forward to working with participants from all corners of the world – the Americas, West and East Europe, Africa as well as from Asia.”

There are multiples ways you can participate in the program


Scholar members are expected to attend all lectures and interactive group workshops. Active Participants are also expected to engage with the lectures, textbooks, pre-readings and an intensive scholarly group project.
