An agreement between Harvard University and the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China provides Harvard undergraduate and graduate students who are U.S. citizens the opportunity to study or conduct research in China for one academic year. The Ministry of Education arranges for the recipient's admission to one of approximately 80 Chinese universities that are approved to accept foreign students by the Ministry of Education and the China Scholarship Council. Five full scholarships (covering tuition and a stipend for living expenses) and 10 partial scholarships (covering tuition only) are available each year. Harvard undergraduate and graduate students apply for consideration directly to the Committee on General Scholarships. To request application materials, contact the Committee on General Scholarships.
