    About the Confucius Institute (CI) Scholarship

    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.


    The CI scholarship will start accepting applications each year from Feburary to May. The results will be announced prior to July.
