On July 14, 2020, the Trump Administration issued an Executive Order on Hong Kong Normalization (EO 13936) in response China’s passage of the Hong Kong National Security Law. While most of the Executive Order appropriately ended Hong Kong’s preferential status under U.S. law, Section 3(i) needlessly terminated the China and Hong Kong Fulbright programs.
China Law & Policy is part of a coalition of other Fulbright alumni calling on the Biden Administration to restore the China and Hong Kong Fulbright programs by repealing Section 3(i) of the Executive Order (put leaving the rest of the EO intact). This page is a resource guide for those efforts and will be constantly updated as more resources and support is available. Please be sure to check back.
If you support restoring the China and Hong Kong Fulbrights, please sign our Change.org petition here.
