Lohez Foundation Partners on Europe/Asia Dual-Degree Program

The Graduate Dual-Degree Program on Europe and Asia in Global Affairs is a transnational joint-venture between Sciences Po in Paris, France, and Fudan University in Shanghai, China.

These two great universities have partnered with the Jérôme Lohez 9/11 Scholarship Foundation to open scholarship opportunities for all students who are enrolled in the graduate dual-degree program. The first year of study will take place in Paris, and the second year of study will take place in Shanghai.

The Europe and Asia in Global Affairs dual degree is available to all students who are interested in analyzing European and Asian studies from both comparative and international relations perspectives.

The European Union sees Asia as the new frontier of its international policies due to the important challenges it faces on an economic and a geopolitical level. At the same time, this dual degree is aimed at European specialists who would like to deepen their understanding of Europe through a comparison with Asia; at Asian specialists who aspire to strengthen their understanding of Asia in relation to other regions; and at International Relations specialists eager to acquire a more specific insight on the challenges and content of Europe-Asia relations. The students enrolled in this dual-degree program will benefit from the research network that exists between Sciences Po and Fudan University in international relations.

Graduates of this dual degree will have access to a wide range of career openings in European affairs in Europe or elsewhere in the world.

The deadline for applications to the Lohez Foundation is Sept. 30, 2014. The board will meet to review submissions in mid-October and scholarship winners will be announced in early November. The award presentation reception is usually held at the French Consul’s residence in Shanghai.

Mercredi 1er mai, le consulat général de France à New York a décoré Dening Wu Lohez lors d'une cérémonie en son honneur.

Immédiatement après avoir perdu son mari français dans les attentats du 11-Septembre, en 2001, Dening Wu Lohez a fait un don en son nom : une bourse scolaire a été ainsi créée via le Stevens Institute of Technology, l'université où le couple s'était rencontré. Jérôme Lohez était alors étudiant, en échange aux Etats-Unis. Il s'était installé à New York après avoir obtenu son diplôme.
