Accept MA offer or take fully-funded year abroad?



I've been wrestling between whether to take a fully paid year abroad in China (primarily learning history and language) or accepting my offers at University of Washington and UC San Diego. Before I decide, I will (cordially) ask my preferred school if they will either defer admission or allow me to resubmit my application next year. 


If I go abroad, I could potentially apply for Fulbright Taiwan, Knight Hennessy Scholars (Stanford), and a variety of other programs I did not receive this year. But I would also potentially lose offers from the two schools I have been admitted to (waiting on funding offers, got around half-funding at Washington before further scholarship applications). 


Would someone mind weighing in on this? Thank you.
