Con­fu­cius Insti­tute Schol­ar­ship now open

Writ­ten by Wei Hong.

The Con­fu­cius Insti­tute Schol­ar­ship intends to pro­vide finan­cial assis­tance to stu­dents who wish to study Chi­nese lan­guage and cul­ture at Shang­hai Jiao Tong Uni­ver­sity, Shang­hai, China for a semes­ter or a year. While all their expenses includ­ing tuition, text­book, on-​site med­ical insur­ance and dor­mi­tory are paid for, Pur­due stu­dents will have the oppor­tu­nity to have their lan­guage and cul­tural course cred­its directly trans­ferred to Pur­due. Stu­dents are required to take Hanyu Shuip­ing Kaoshi, or HSK, a Chi­nese lan­guage pro­fi­ciency test before being con­sid­ered. Inter­ested stu­dents should con­tact Prof Wei Hong for fur­ther infor­ma­tion and appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dures. The 20152016 schol­ar­ship is now open.
