Having Trouble Logging In?
Please share any stories they've told you about their trips in this forum.
No I dont know anyone who has attended the International Scholar Laureate Program in the past except myself. :)
I'm part of the June 5-15 tour including the 3 extra days in Hong Kong and I'm wondering if anyone else from Canada/Saskatchewan is going. I'm going from Saskatoon with a stop in Vancouver. Reach me at jlp693 at mail.usask.ca
Overall, my ISLP experience was exceptional and it exceeded my expectations. I didn't know anyone who was attending the delegation, and I realized that many others didn't know anyone either. As we all started getting acquainted, a lot of friendships were formed.
Besides the lasting friendships, the trip would not have been as much fun without the faculty advisors, who were outgoing and extremely helpful. They encouraged students to come out of their comfort zone, be more outgoing, or ‘come out of their shell’ so to speak, and make friends with the other national students. The curriculum and discussions that were intertwined throughout the trip were thought provoking. The faculty advisors would always ask us our thoughts on speakers and events, and being able to have a discussion about what we just experienced; although sometimes brief, helped highlight what we were to learn.
Being able to befriend and share experiences with the Australian medical students was also exciting and memorable. Not only did we get a chance to know what it is like to be a medical student with CPR Certification in Australia, but also what their life is like in Australia and vice versa for what life is like for us in America and our respective states. The experiences I have gotten from my ISLP Australia trip are forever memorable and ones I wouldn’t have experienced without taking advantage of this the opportunity.
I meant I would like to travel with someone else from Canada lol. My mistake. Anyway anybody from Canada looking to travel together is welcome to respond, either here or to my email address, firstname.lastname@example.org. I think I'll be booking through Worldtek, so that might make it easier for us to get on the same flights if anybody chooses to travel together.
Is anyone from Texas attending the Delegation on Engineering to China, the first session?
Hi guys! Anyone from Toronto, Canada going to the Diplomacy delegation to China, which starts on June 12th?? I am attending York University located in Toronto. If anyone leaving from Toronto, feel free to contact me: )
I'm also from Canada and attending the delegation on International Relations and Diplomacy in China and would love to travel with someone else from China. I'm from Saskatchewan and will likely be leaving Saskatoon and switching planes in Vancouver.
Either or both of you should let me know if you want to get together to travel.
I have been nominated as part of the delegation in China (engineering). I Study at the University of the Western Cape, South Africa. I would like to know of anyone who is also attending the program in China. I know that this is a great opportunity for me and would really appreciate talking to someone who will be part of the delegation. Thank you
I appreciate the work of all people who share information with others.

I am also interested in the offer if it still stands.
Please contact me at email@example.com!
If you are still offering this, I am interested!!! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please contact me!
I've been on a related conference with the company that organizes this, Envision EMI, LLC, and it was a success. However, some of the other kids didn't think so and now we all have these vouchers they gave us:
I have two, worth $625 "Envision bucks" each, i.e., they can be used for trips such as this one or any of the other ones offered. I'd like to get offer them to someone who can use them as I am too old to go on these trips. Anyone interested please let me know as this will significantly decrease your fundraising difficulties.
PS I hope I'm allowed to post this here because there's really no easy way to gain attention of the people who are interested in this.
I have got an opportunity to choose ISLP Medicine delegation to Australia or China. I think I will go to Australia. Do you guys have any information on finding funding for this kind of programs besides the Phi Theta Kappa Member scholarship.
I've been nominated for the (ISLP) Delegation on Engineering in China.
I really don't have the money, and have to much going on, but if this is a truly life changing experience please let me know. I would do anything to assist.
Also, has it helped anyone in their resume once graduated from a university?
Thank you for you time!
The China Medicine Delegation was one of the most awesome experiences I have had to date. The ten days were packed with educational and cultural information that will last a lifetime. I am excited that I overcame my skepticism and raised the money to participate.
A few tips: Ladies should always wear flats....never know how long you'll have to walk after exiting the bus
Ask quesions and make the most of this experience...it's once in a lifetime!!
Actually follow up with friends from China and the Delegation, never know what networking opportunity will present itself.
If something doesn't feel right......don't do it, and tell an advisor
Make sure you have enough batteries, or a power source for your camera.
Bring some going out gear. You may want to experience China's nightlife. Have a bag for dirty clothes-so they dont smell up your clean ones.
As a Black woman in China, I had many photo opps. At first you feel like a celebrity, but it gets a little old. Remember to be polite, even if people stare.
Don't bother buying lighters as souvenirs (not even allowed in checked bags)
RIDE THE BULLET TRAIN (only 40yuan--$6.50) and you get to the airport in 7minutes
Pack light. You will want to bring back souvenirs. If overweight, you have to pay. Not to mention, sometimes you have to carry your own lugguage for quite a distance.
China was awesome, I'd definitely go back. Thank you ISLP for exposing me to such an incredible place.
One of my favorite travels of my life. What a great experience!!!
I attended the 2008 ISLP Diplomatic and international relations *Just* before the 2008 olympics. I had a blast and learned alot too about each individual's contribution to the program. The key is not to panic before or during your stay...everything will be fine...oh and good character and good fellowship exchanges with our hosts go a long way...
plan, prepare, and keep your focus...
It's also a better idea to party in your hotel rooms...less likely to get into trouble when you don't know the language. Oh and a Chinese phrase book IS a lifesaver...even attempting to learn the language is bonus points of respect for our hosts and whomever you may run-into on the street for help.
1st thing you should do once you land any city, GET A MAP and get familiar 360* of every landmark around your hotel...if you travel out on your own or with small groups this will help you get back (once youve marked where you'll be staying at on that map).
Oh...and as Dio once said: "Don't Talk to Stranger's" It's really applied to natives that come up to you...as you can approach almost anyone to help you out...it just seems weird for a native to come up to a foreigner 'such as yourself' and expect to give information or help with a situation.
I have just been nominated for the ISLP and am keen to pick China. Any advice about how to go about this and if it is a worthwhile trip? I am keen that it is just not a touristy thing. I hope there is a lot of interactions with university, business people etc.
ISLP Programs are definitely not tourist trips - they are a careful blend of career, culture, and curriculum. I recommend you send a tweet to graphicjay22. Jason attended the Delegation on Business in China this May. I think he can share some valuable insight with you.
I'm glad to see a testimony of the trip. I was nominated and the program I'm very much looking forward to taking is the China session. I was just wondering, how many were there in the group you went with?
I'd appreciate your reply :)
I attended the delegation on Medicine in China last summer and had the time of my life! I don't think any other trip to China would be comparable. I made amazing friends who are still some of my closest, I also got to further my medical career and understand Eastern medical techniques and theories. On top of that, I went to some of the most amazing places: large cities, small remote villages, hospitals, mental hospitals, orphanages, schools, and so much more. I would not hesitate on going on another trip through ISLP! Truely a life changing experience that I highly recommend! I learned not only about the culture but I also ended up learning a lot about myself and people in general. I could go on and on about my trip but I will restrain myself from doing so.
Online enrollment for the Summer 2013 sessions is now closed.
