A student may submit no more than one essay for the competition per year.
The HNC opened in 1986 as a one-of-a-kind educational collaboration between The Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University. Located on the downtown campus of Nanjing University, the center upholds the highest American and Chinese academic standards in the pursuit of educating future leaders for the increasingly complex relations between China and the world community. The Hopkins-Nanjing Center brings together American students and those from other countries (known collectively as "international students") with Chinese students in three graduate studies program options: a one-year certificate, a two-year master of arts in international studies, and a five-semester degree option in Janjing and Washington, D.C.
