Scholarship: Selection CriteriaThe eligibility for receipt of the scholarships is considered with first year college students having successfully completed a year with academic excellence. The scholarship currently is open to all majors at the University. Currently, the Chinese government will provide any needed funds in the first year of education to the worthy student.

The selection committee (University president, the Vice President Academic, the Director of Foreign Affairs, and the Department of Student Assistance) have a significant task in selecting talented students as candidates for the limited scholarships.
