Confucius Institute Scholarships
With the rapid development of China’s economy there has been a trend among Americans to study, work and live in China. In response to this demand, the Chinese government is providing 10,000 U.S. students scholarships for studying in China. In our role as a bridge between the US and China, we help our students take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity by offering Confucius Institute Scholarships. These scholarships are only available to students who have received a minimum score on the HSK exam, have never studied in China before, and who are between ages 16-35.
There are 3 types of scholarships available:
1. One semester study scholarship – Must receive a score of 120 or higher on HSK exam level 2 and a score of 40 or above on the Primary Level HSKK.
2. One year study scholarship – Must receive a score of 180 or higher on HSK exam level 3 and a score of 50 or above on the Intermediate Level HSKK.
3. Two-year Master’s Degree in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages (MTCSOL) scholarship – must have a Bachelor’s degree, a score of 180 or higher on HSK exam level 5, and a score of 50 or above on the Intermediate Level HSKK. Applicants must also make a written commitment to teach Chinese for 5 years after graduation. Chinese teachers up to age 45 can apply for this scholarship.
The scholarships include tuition, lodging, insurance, and stipend.
If you are interested in qualifying for the scholarship you may take courses or have one on one tutoring sessions at the Confucius Institute.
