Dear Friends,

After a competitive three-month application process, I am happy to announce that the 100,000 Strong Foundation is welcoming six new organizations as Signature Partners. “These organizations are a valuable addition to the 100K Strong Signature Partner network,” said 100K Strong Board Member and Diversity Committee Chair Liz Haenle. “I am confident that, working together, we can inspire a broad cross section of young Americans to learn Mandarin and study in China.”


These six new partners join our existing Signature Partners in serving as models for other organizations and communities across the country. Each partner nominate ten 100K Strong Student Ambassadors to engage their communities and promote the 100K Strong mission at the grassroots level.

We look forward to collaborating with our partners to grow the 100,000 Strong Foundation’s nationwide movement to promote deeper US-China ties through study abroad and Mandarin language learning.
