Become a Contributor to!


Thank you for your interest in becoming a contributor to!

This is a volunteer opportunity currently offered to undergraduate students attending universities in the state of Georgia. For students interested in a career in international affairs, political science, media, or journalism, this is an excellent opportunity to build your portfolio, gain experience working with a non-governmental organization, enhance your knowledge of Chinese affairs, and improve your writing skills.

Our contributors write about a wide variety of selected topics regarding the U.S.-China relationship. Topics will generally be selected by the China Program, but students will have some discretion in this regard.

Contributors are generally expected to write 1-2 articles per month, each at a length of approximately 500-1000 words. Articles will be reviewed by China Program staff and edited by China Program interns.

We also highly encourage selected writers to apply for an internship with The Carter Center.
