SUMMIT and Application Information
October 5-9, 2017

Every year, FACES selects forty outstanding delegates from around the world to attend the FACES Summit. The Summit takes place in two sessions, first at Stanford and then in China. The China session of the 2017-18 Summit will take place at Peking University. FACES Delegates are required to attend both sessions.
If you have not done so yet, we invite you to read our Fall 2017 Summit Report to learn more about what happens at the Stanford session of the Summit.
Applications are currently closed for the 2017-18 Annual Summit. Learn more about FACES and our mission by navigating our website, and we invite you to apply for the 2018-19 Annual Summit next fall.

- Undergraduate sophomore or above at the time of the Summit

While the majority of FACES delegates are U.S. or Chinese nationals, we welcome applicants from other countries to bring a diversity of perspectives. Please contact us if you have any question about eligibility.
Funding and Financial Aid
FACES subsidizes travel expenses and pays for all costs of food, accommodation, transportation during the Summit. For details of our funding policy, please see our Guidelines on Funding and Financial Aid.
Delegate Selection Criteria
Delegates are selected for their potential to both benefit from and contribute to the Summit. Delegates chosen also demonstrate potential to bring what they learn at the Summit into the future careers they aspire to. With the expectation that delegate-to-delegate interactions are the foundation of the FACES Summit, we also believe that applicants should demonstrate strong willingness to share ideas, experiences, and perspectives, as well as a strong capacity to develop as a member of the FACES community in the long-term.
The application process has two rounds. Applicants are first asked to fill in an application and submit their resume. Those selected for the second-round interview will be notified by mid July. The final admissions result will be released in August.
