Thank you for your interest in the Chinese Language Flagship at WKU! We hope this website will provide an introduction to our program and the opportunities for overseas study associated with the intensive study of Chinese language and culture. WKU and external scholarships support these overseas experiences, and our highly motivated students are consistently winning nationally competitive scholarships. Flagship students work very closely with the Office of Scholar Development (OSD) to ensure they are aware of the opportunities and how to prepare a competitive scholarship application.
Our current students come from many disciplines, and we welcome students pursuing any major to apply for admission to the Flagship program. The majority of our students have no prior knowledge of the Chinese language, but there are resources in the region for an introduction to Chinese language and culture for students in grades K-12. We are happy to discuss these options with you, and encourage all students to begin learning about Chinese language and culture prior to your application to the Chinese Flagship Program.
If you would like to schedule a visit or to speak with a Chinese Flagship Student Ambassador, please contact Melinda Edgerton, 270-745-2763, firstname.lastname@example.org.
