NEW YORK, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Maximum Educational Opportunities, Inc. (g-MEO) together with the American International Education Foundation has established the g-MEO-AIEF Chengdu American Center for Study Abroad Scholarship.
Located in the capital of China's Sichuan Province, g-MEO's Chengdu American Center for Study Abroad provides Sophomores and Juniors the opportunity to study abroad at the Center for a semester or full academic year and take U.S. developed courses in the areas of Business and Management, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Humanities and Social Sciences, and China Studies as well as Mandarin language courses for various levels of proficiency by faculty members of several U.S. and China universities and colleges. Students interested in combining their academic experience with experiential learning opportunities also have the ability to engage in internship or volunteer activities with various organizations outside of the classroom while attending the Center for their study abroad experience.
"The Chengdu American Center for Study Abroad offers a unique learning experience to our American students. It provides a 100 percent American education in a 100 percent Chinese environment with plenty of internship opportunities in local organizations.
