Apply now for 2018-19 scholarship. The New England Board of Higher Education is pleased to announce the NEBHE-Chinese Government Scholarship, a timely opportunity for New England college and university students.
Over the past decade, China has become a top study abroad destination for U.S. students. According to the Institute of International Education’s Open Doors report, the number of American students studying in China doubled from approximately 6,000 in 2005-06 to nearly 12,000 in 2015-16, making China one of the top six study abroad destinations in the world. U.S. students appear eager to learn the language, culture and practices of the world’s second-largest economy from the inside.
Through NEBHE, qualified New England students may be eligible to study at a Chinese university and receive a full scholarship. The scholarships are provided by the Chinese Government and will cover tuition and fees for scholarship recipients at hundreds of Chinese institutions. Students are able to enroll in classes taught in either English or Chinese, as well as in preparatory Chinese language classes. Up to 12 full scholarships will be available for New England residents each year.
The scholarships will be competitively awarded to students from New England who are non-Chinese citizens. Scholarships can be used for varying durations of study: from one year to five years. Short-term scholarships will fund one to two years of study to students who have completed two years of undergraduate study. Long-term scholarships are available for students to pursue a full undergraduate, master’s or doctoral degree program.
Interested students should visit the program website at: www.nebhe.org/china for detailed information about eligibility and the application process. Students are encouraged to apply now for 2018-19 scholarships. Completed applications should be submitted to NEBHE no later than Feb. 20, 2018.
