The Institute on China and its Cultures is a study abroad program for Vermont educators in China. The program, which includes three instate planning session and three weeks overseas, provides participants with the opportunity to study various aspects of Chinese culture such as economic development, education, and women's social status, and minority cultures in China.

General Guideline for All Overseas Programs
  • The overseas program is open to Vermont teachers and school administrators only.
  • Each participant must receive his or her school principal's approval to apply for and participate in the program.
  • Teachers in the overseas program are expected to participate in the conferences and workshops sponsored by ASOP in the following year. They are also expected to teach about China in their schools when they return from abroad.
  • Those who have visited Asia through the ASOP sponsored program must wait at least two years in order to qualify for participation in another overseas program. This insures a broad base of participation by Vermont teachers.
  • The cost indicated in the program brochure for the program covers international transportation, domestic trans portion, instructional fees in Asia, field trips, housing, and three meals a day.
  • Participants who withdraw from the course after the first spring planning session date will be billed for the full amount of cost which includes UVM course tuition and all program fees.
