Re:     U.S. Foreign Policy Colloquium applications due March 15th

Students who will be graduating in Spring 2003 are still eligible to apply
for the program; only students from the PRC and Hong Kong SAR will be
considered; travel scholarships are limited and partial; students will hear
about their travel scholarship status when they receive their acceptance
letters.  With those facts in mind, we hope that all interested students
will apply by March 15.
Below are the program basics; for more information and to download an
application, please refer to our website:

The U.S. Foreign Policy Colloquium is a three-day, in-depth examination of
American foreign policy that will feature many exciting, knowledgeable
speakers - former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of
Defense Robert McNamara, former Ambassador to the PRC Joseph Prueher, and
Vice President Gore's National Security Advisor Leon Fuerth, are among those
who have already confirmed.  We also plan to have senior Administration
officials and at least one member of Congress speak as well.  The program is
designed to be interactive; there will be ample opportunity for dialogue
with the speakers.

The weekend conference will take place June 5-8 in Washington, D.C.,
beginning with the keynote speech in the late afternoon of the 5th and
ending the with a farewell party on the evening of the 7th; there will be
optional sight seeing on the 8th.
