Scholarships for one academic year of study or research in China are made possible through an agreement between the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China and Harvard University. For the 2003-04 academic year, five full scholarships (covering tuition, housing, health insurance, and books) and 10 partial scholarships (covering tuition) will be offered for study or research at one of approximately 80 Chinese universities authorized by the China Scholarship Council (CSC) to admit foreign scholarship students.
Harvard undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty who are citizens of the United States are eligible to apply. The application deadline is March 14. Because the CSC requires applicants to submit the results of a medical examination on forms provided with the application, scholarship candidates are urged to arrange for a medical exam at the earliest date possible.
