The University of Alberta is delighted to have a very active collaboration with the CSC under their State-Sponsored Scholarship Program. This program provides scholarships of up to four years for top Chinese students who wish to obtain a Doctoral degree from the University of Alberta. The scholarships are open to all areas of study.
Value: Under the master agreement with the CSC, the CSC provides the student with a monthly stipend of $1,600 for up to four years, while the University of Alberta will cover the CSC students' tuition and fees. The University of Alberta will also refund the CSC scholar's application fee, upon arrival at the University of Alberta.
Process: The student applies for admission to a University of Alberta Doctoral program by following the standard application process; please indicate on the application under funding, that you will be applying for the CSC. If recommended for admission by the department, the student will use the official letter of admission as part of their scholarship application to the CSC early in the New Year. The results will be made available in the spring.
For further information on the CSC, please visit the China Scholarship Council website. Should you have further questions regarding the University of Alberta CSC agreement, please contact Dan Fredrick (firstname.lastname@example.org) at University of Alberta International. You can also direct your questions to the administrator of the graduate program to which you are applying.
We encourage CSC candidates to apply early to ensure that admitted applicants receive their official admission letter in advance of the CSC application deadline in early March.
