Harvard University-China Scholarship Council Exchange Scholarships

An agreement between Harvard University and the China Scholarship Council of the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China provides Harvard undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to study or conduct research in China for one academic year. Up to five full scholarships (which includes tuition, campus housing, health insurance, and a stipend) and ten partial scholarships (tuition only) are offered for study or research at selected Chinese universities authorized to admit foreign scholarship students. Admission to the selected university for scholarship winners is arranged by the China Scholarship Council (CSC) and recipients also receive a visa application which is pre-approved by the Chinese Ministry of Education. Applicants must be non-Chinese citizens and in good health.

Deadline: February 10, 2017

For more information, including application procedures for the 2017-2018 academic year, please consult the program guidelines.

There have been technical problems with the CSC application portal that should be resolved by February 5th. As a result, we have moved our internal deadline from January 27th to February 10th. If you're interested in applying, please email so we may be in touch if any technical issues persist.
