The Chinese University Program scholarship was established in 2008 by the Chinese Ministry of Education to support Chinese universities in specific provinces and autonomous regions. This scholarship provides financial support so that these universities can recruit exceptional full-time graduate students.
The award provides a full scholarship covering tuition, accommodations, a modest stipend, and medical insurance. Students will be provided with free university housing (typically a twin room), or a monthly subsidy for off-campus housing (in the amount of no more than CNY 1,000 per month). Recipients will also be allotted a stipend of up to CNY 3,500 per month. The scholarship will last anywhere from two to four academic years, depending on program of study.
An eligible applicant will not be a registered student in any Chinese university, or a Chinese citizen at the time of application. Applicants for master’s degree studies must be under the age of thirty-five and have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree by September 1st, 2018. Applicants for doctoral studies must have a master’s degree or equivalent and be under the age of forty by the same date. Students who have been granted any other Chinese government scholarship may not apply.
