Founded in 1998, the Ameson Foundation is a non-profit, non-governmental organization committed to the advancement of cultural and educational exchange. Its honorary Chairman was the late Dr. Boutros Boutros-Ghali, former Secretary General of the United Nations. As the 21st century unfolds, U.S.-China relations continue to become even more important. At Ameson, we believe that lasting stability can be achieved through dialogue and exchange. We are seeking future leaders to fulfill that mission.
