Chinese govt awards scholarships to 80 PH studes


The Embassy of the People’s Republic of China is pleased to announce that, after accepting applications and detailed evaluation, 80 Filipinos have been chosen to receive the 2019 Chinese Government Scholarship according to the China Scholarship Council.

The issued scholarship grants for this year covered majors such as International Relations, Corporate Management, Clinical Medicine, Engineering Management and Chinese Language for undergraduate, master’s and doctorate degrees. These scholarships provided free tuition, free lodging, stipend and health insurance for Peking University, Tsinghua University, Xiamen University, Jinan University, Fujian Normal University and many other prestigious universities in China.

Besides free tuition to several prestigious Chinese universities, the
scholarship comes with free lodging, a stipend and health insurance.

A number of Filipinos were beneficiaries of this program. Among the scholarship grantees this year is Melvin Chua known as “Sponge boy” of Makati and Taguig for selling sponges to fund his education from grade school to college. He has been given the chance to study in Beijing for a Master’s Degree in support of his dream.

The Chinese Government Scholarship is offered annually, providing opportunities to study in over 200 universities in China. The scholarships are awarded through the Chinese Embassy in different countries.

The Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in the Philippines, who is in charge of scholarship applications, is currently in the process of delivering admission letters to the selected Filipino students. This is in pursuit of their aim of promoting people to people exchanges between China and the Philippines.
