Faculty Emeriti Association Lecture by Zoom

Speaker: David J. Firestein 

President and Chief Executive Officer
George H. W. Bush Foundation for U.S.-China Relations

Faculty Emeriti Association Lectures are open to all those interested.

In January, the voters in Taiwan elected Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate William Lai president, giving the DPP an unprecedented third consecutive presidential term. In electing Lai, the plurality of Taiwan voters defied Chinese exhortations and threats. Tensions between the Taiwan and the mainland, already high before the election, have increased in the wake of the election and some analysts assess that the likelihood of cross-Strait military conflict, possibly even in the fairly near term, has increased. What implications will William Lai's assumption of office in May have for Taiwan, the relationship between Taiwan and the mainland, and the relationships between both Taiwan and mainland China and the United States. George H. W. Bush Foundation for U.S.-China Relations president and CEO David Firestein will share his insights and views on these and related topics. Firestein is a longtime dear friend of Michigan State University and an honorary Spartan; over many visits to campus since 2007, he has given scores of talks at MSU and across the East Lansing community.

MSU students and recent graduates are invited to this Fulbright information session, which will be presented by MSU's Fulbright Program Advisor, Joy Campbell. The most common Fulbright programs to which MSU students and recent graduates apply are administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE) and funded by the US Department of State. 

Participants will learn about the English Teaching Assistant, Open Study, and Research grants offered by IIE. The presenter will give an overview of the programs, discuss eligibility and benefits, then cover the various application requirements. 

The session will be a Zoom meeting, as opposed to a webinar, so there will be opportunities for interaction and ample time for Q&A.

For more information, explore the MSU Fulbright website, and contact Joy Campbell with any questions.
