Educators Tour to China, 2010

The Chinese American Cultural Bridge Center, a nonprofit organization since 1992 is organizing a 2010 Educators Tour to China. This cultural exchange tour has two different routes; one is Trip A, 15 day June 29 – July 13, 2010 for $3,995 per person. The other is special sponsored Trip B, 12 day from July 15 – 26, 2010 for $2,995 per person. Educators that participate in this trip will learn all aspect of China, and at the end of this trip each educators will receive 50 CPDU’s . One of the highlight of this trip is the 2010 Shanghai Expo .

As our ways of giving back to the community, we are also offered 3 scholarships for three lucky participants attending one of these two tours. These three scholarships will help to pay the cost of the trip; each varies in its own amount and requires all participants to give a presentation in a conference/workshop after their trip ? but at different level. The highest amount is $1,500, the gold scholarship which requires the participants to present at a National Conference in their subject area. The 2 nd highest is $1,000, the Silver scholarship which requires the participant to present at a National/Regional Conference in their subject area. The 3 rd scholarship is $500, the Bronze scholarship which requires the participants to present at a regional/local conference in their subject area.

Although this is an educator’s trip, people who work with education, their family and friends are invited as well .
