China Scholarship Council-UC Davis Joint Ph.D. Training Program Scholarship

China Scholarship Council-UC Davis Ph.D. Fellowship


Provost Ralph Hexter and Jinghui Liu, Secretary General of China Scholarship Council, signed a Memorandum of Understanding on May 8, 2012 to finalize a collaborative agreement that will offer up to 20 Ph.D. fellowships annually to students from China. This program has the potential, if fully implemented, to provide up to $8 million in graduate student support.

Initiated by the Office of Global Affairs, the Office of Graduate Studies will partner with the China Scholarship Council (CSC). The fellowship will pay full tuition fees, living costs, round trip airfare to California, visa application fees, and the cost for health insurance for the first two years. UC Davis will provide each selected student with support for the following three years. The agreement is for four years with options to extend it upon mutual approval.
