Every year the Center for Language Education and Cooperation awards scholarships to Chinese learners for a study trip to a university in China.
We support the application of our course participants!
Depending on the scholarship category, applicants can select from more than 100 universities. The list of universities can be found online on the Confucius Institute scholarship website (http://cis.chinese.cn). Subjects such as Chinese language and literature, Chinese history, Chinese philosophy, TCM, Chinese music or Chinese dance are offered. Our partner university is the Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) in Beijing.
The application phase starts on 1 March, 2022. Early submission of documents increases the chances of success, as the universities have a limited number of places available. First come, first served.
