The George H. W. Bush Foundation for U.S.-China Relations (Bush China Foundation) is looking for Americans and Chinese between the ages of 18 to 25 passionate about engaging in cross-cultural dialogue on domestic and international issues impacting the U.S.-China relationship today and in the years to come.  

The Foundation’s U.S.-China XGen Initiative is bringing together varying generations of Americans and Chinese to exchange views on an equal footing, contributing to a more nuanced understanding of societal perspectives on critical issues. The initiative is building a unique platform that constructively addresses some of the key sources of intergenerational conflict by fostering exchanges of viewpoints between generations on the varying factors behind perception differences. The challenges of the 21st century are consequential, and we believe that increased dialogue among the most critical players—the current and future thought leaders of the United States and China—will only better equip the United States, as well as China and the world, to address these challenges.
