China Government Scholarships

Each year, the Government of China provides a number of scholarships enabling residents of Alberta to study in China.  Five full and ten partial scholarships are available annually.

Alberta high school graduates, post-secondary students and scholars wishing to participate in Chinese language studies, academic study at the undergraduate or graduate level, or research are all eligible.

The language of instruction is primarily Chinese, but a limited number of programs are offered in English.  The program may also sponsor and recommend remedial Chinese language studies for applicants who are not applying for the Chinese language study program.

Applications for the 2017/2018 academic year are due by January 4, 2017.

Applications for the Chinese Government Scholarship program will be processed in Spring 2016.  All applicants will be notified by June 2016.  Successful applicants will commence their studies in September 2016.

An online application is required by the China Scholarship Council, a printout of which is to be included in the package sent to Alberta Advanced Education.

Note, the online application asks for an Agency Number, which for Alberta applicants is 1242.  In addition, you will be asked for a Guarantor, which is not necessary to add if you do not have one.
