ALL ACADEMICS AT UCSD
ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
The Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for International Affairs would like to alert you of a scholarship program offered by the Chinese government to American Association Universities (AAU) partners such as UCSD (The Association of American Universities (AAU) was founded in 1900 by a group of fourteen universities. It currently consists of 60 American universities and two Canadian universities). As the deadline for this new AAU program is May 20, prompt action will be required by those who wish to take advantage of this opportunity.
The Chinese Government Scholarship program will provide ten to fifteen scholarships to students at AAU universities for study in China. The program is being offered this year as a pilot program, which they hope to expand into an annual program over time. The program is intended to be a flexible program designed to meet students' needs and interests. Scholarships will be awarded competitively for one or more years of study at a Chinese university at the bachelor's. Master's, or doctoral level. In addition to one or more years of study available for undergraduate study, scholarships are available for up to two years of Master's study, and up to three years of doctoral study for students with a Master's degree or equivalent. Student proposals leading to the completion of a degree are encouraged but not required.
Before beginning their academic programs, students may be provided one to two years of remedial Chinese language studies in China, depending on the initial language ability of the student. The scholarship program will cover tuition and fees, provide dormitory housing and a living allowance. Scholarship students will be required to meet the cost of travel to and from China.
The China Scholarship Council will select scholarship recipients from the pool of applicants from AAU universities. Applicants may name three Chinese institutions as their preferred institutions for their program of study. Applications should be submitted to the AAU. The AAU will in turn transmit the applications to the Chinese embassy, which will review the applications to ensure that eligibility requirements are met. The Embassy will then transmit the applications to the China Scholarship Council, which will carry out the selection process.
Application deadline date: Applications should be submitted to AAU by May 20, 2008 at the following address:
THE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES 1200 NEW YORK AVENUE NW, SUITE 550, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20005 Phone: 202-408-7500 Fax: 202-408-8184
