Youth Summit Registration Fee

  • Individual candidates: $200 per person

***Youth who have been actively engaged in the realization of the UN MDGs. EACT will offer an MDG Pioneer Grant to cover the entire and half of their summit registration fee. Please use the application form as an opportunity to best present yourself!

That said, outstanding Youth Grantee candidates can very possibly win a "Full-pakcage Grant" which covers not only the summit registration fee but also the living costs during the Service Learning. And this Full-package Grant is nearly up to $2000.***

  • Group of 6 candidates or more: A $50 discount per person, if all got admitted finally.

Note: If a candidate referred the event to others and then they together apply as a group of  6 or more, the referee wins the higher one between the group discount and the referring reward (please refer to the rewards). For example, if a candidate referred the event to 3 friends and finally there are 6 or more, including this candidate and the 3 friends, apply together as a group. This candiate will win $60 ($20*3) as a referral bonus instead of the $50 group discount. Similarly, the referral bonus is up to $100.

Learn more about how you can win a grant or reward to cover the whole or part of the summit registration fee, please check the Grants and Rewards webpage.

2-day Xian Tour Fee (Optional)

\\

All youth participants can choose to join a 2-day tour in China before the summit (July 4 and 5). The tour fee is $100, covering all the domestic transportation, tickets, lodging and meals during the tour.

Beijing Tour (Optional)

A 1-day Beijing Tour will be arranged on July 30 (Monday) after the 3-week Service Learning and EACT will arrange the transportation. The Sunday after the Service Learning will be a FREE DAY. Youth grantees can choose to stay in a group (EACT will provide the transportation), or tour around on their own, or even choose to leave (however, there will be no transportation provided by EACT on July 30 to the airport, because EACT will assume July 31 as the day for most of the grantees to be leaving.)

Service Learning Security Deposit (Refundable. Applies to EACT Youth Grantees only)

A $200 deposit to guarantee grantees’ full commitment to the Service Learning Program. Once they fulfill the program, the $200 deposit will be fully refunded before they leave from China.

Note: The reason for the $200 deposit: In our past programs, we found that certain grantees (very few cases) did not fully commit to the 3-week program, e.g. leaving in the middle of the program due to predicable reasons. In such a case, they not only wasted quotas, which could have been given to other qualified US youth, but also interfered the program logistic arrangements.

Overseas Airfare

Estimately $1,200-1,500 or more for round trip depending on multiple factors. Parcipants are enouraged to book the flight as soon as possible, because usually the airfare will increase as it is close to the departure date. NOTICE: Though EACT does not help cover participants’ air tickets, EACT would love to direct students to certain reliable travel agencies to help them book group tickets at a very reasonable price.

Visa Application Fee

There will be a $140 visa application fee charged by Chinese Embassy. EACT’s Beijing Office will provide a formal “Invitation Letter” to our participants for their visa application. For more guidance, please read the Chinese Visa Application Guidance Sheet.

Travel Insurance Fee

Varied. There is no sponsor for the insurance. All participants are required to have travel insurance. If their existed plan doesn't help cover this part, they are required to purchase one. For more guidance, please read the Insurance Guidance Sheet.
