CHINESE SUMMER PROGRAM 2013
The Chinese Summer Camp Program is an exciting 10-day program that will provide a wonderful experience for the students to explore not only the Chinese language, but its rich and beautiful culture as well. There will be a two hour extensive language course daily, in which students will be grouped together based on his/her Mandarin proficiency, one hour of culture related activities consisting of a variety of cultural presentations, and one hour of interaction with native speaking students from China. This interaction opportunity will allow students to practice their Chinese, and to learn first-hand what’s up and current in China from the visiting students.
The program scheduled for 2013 is TBA. This program is open to students in grades 3-6 who attend Confucius Classroom schools regardless of their Chinese fluency. We encourage that you apply immediately to guarantee your student’s participation in this program. The deadline to accept your application is TBA.
Due to a severe budget cut of funding previously offered to CI/SDSU, this program may be cancelled or combined into one session if a minimum count of 15 students is not met for each session.
We thank you for your support and your understanding. For more information, please contact the Confucius Institute at 619-594-4791 or at firstname.lastname@example.org

The Confucius Institute Scholarship Program was established by Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters in order to encourage students and Chinese language teachers all over the world to study Chinese or conduct research regarding Chinese language and culture in China.
The steps to study in China with the CI scholarship are:
1. Sending the required materials(will be indicated by the instruction early of next year) to Hanban. On the application form, the applicants will indicate the university they are going to apply.
2. Once the scholarship committee confirms that the applicants are qualified for the scholarship, Hanban will inform the university about the scholarship recipient and forward the application material to the university for admission evaluation.
3. The university will work on the materials of the scholarship recipient and determine if the university will grant the admission to the scholarship recipient. If yes, university will send admission notice directly to the recipient. If not, we will contact the scholarship recipients and help them contact other universities they choose until they are accepted by one.
The CI scholarship will start accepting applications in the beginning of each year until March 31. The results will be announced prior to April.
