The Parvin Fellowship Program in Journalism Studies builds international understanding through journalism training, advanced studies and U.S. cultural contacts for journalists from the People’s Republic of China.
University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Chancellor Virginia Hinshaw recently traveled to China with Phyllis Parvin to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Parvin Fellowship Program in Journalism Studies. Parvin is president of the Albert Parvin Foundation, which is the principal financial sponsor of the program at UH Mānoa.
Over the years, this pioneering program has yielded more than 200 Chinese journalists and hosts the largest number of journalists the PRC sends abroad as a group for training. A majority of Parvin Fellows have come from China Daily and the Xinhua News Agency.
