How to get scholarships

NOTE: Due to COVID-19, many scholarships can only be granted to students living in China, due to the terms of the scholarship and international money transfer guidelines. Some students currently not in China due to COVID report receiving none or just a percentage of their scholarship funds. If you plan to rely fully on scholarships, note that not being in China may impact the scholarship disbursement.
