China Scholarship Council

The China Scholarship Council is a non-profit institution affiliated with the Ministry of Education. Its objective is to provide financial assistance to Chinese citizens wishing to study abroad and to foreign citizens wishing to study in China.

It aims to develop educational, scientific, technological, and cultural exchanges, and economic and trade cooperation between China and other countries, to strengthen the friendship and understanding between Chinese people and the people of all other countries, and to promote world peace and the socialist modernization drive in China.

The China Scholarship Council works with the Cambridge Trust to offer both the CSC Cambridge Scholarship (for PhD applicants), and the CSC Cambridge Masters Scholarship.  Both awards can be made in a range of academic subjects.
