Sino-American Cultural Exchange Scholarship 2013

1. Introduction

This programme is sponsored by the Ministry of Education of China, in response to President Barack Obama's proposal of sending 100,000 American students to study in China . The programme plans to finance a total of 10,000 American students, either for degree studies or just for non-degree credits.
The degree-study scholarship provides full funds for full-time American master's or doctoral candidates admitted by the designated Chinese universities. The scholarship for non-degree credits is intended for those whose own American universities will recognize the credits they will have obtained during a minimum of three-month study at the designated Chinese universities.
