Lots of students ask CUCAS to apply scholarship for them. But CUCAS focus on helping international students apply for the programs at China’s universities. We just provide the scholarship information for students.

In this article, I’ll take Beihang University as an example, to introduce you the different scholarships and how to apply them.

There are 4 kinds of scholarships in Beihang University:

Chinese Government Scholarship

  • Applicants must be foreign citizens who will study in Beihang University;
  • Only the programs on the list can apply the scholarship;
  • Application period is from January to April. The detail application day is different by different year.

CUCAS Advice: This is the full scholarship, including the tuition fee and the living expense. It is really competitive. You should have a very high academic score.

Scholarship of Beijing Municipal Government and Beihang University

  • Applicants must be foreign citizens who will study in Beihang University;
  • Application deadline is December 20 (Spring Semester) and May 25 (Fall Semester);
  • Applicants should be recommended by the schools, institutions or government departments cooperated with BUAA.

CUCAS Advice: I think this scholarship is mainly give to the exchange students or the students in the cooperated schools. It is much easier than Chinese Government Scholarship, but you have to get threcommendation.

 Self-Supported Foreign Students Scholarship of Beijing Municipal Government and Beihang University

  • Applicants must be self-supported foreign students who will study for Bachelor’s Degree in BUAA.
  • Applicants do not obtain any other kind of support by organizations.
  • Application period for current Self-Supported Foreign Students Scholarship is May 10 to May 25.

CUCAS Advice: This scholarship is classified as Special Prize, First Prize, Second Prize and Third Prize. Special prize is almost like the full scholarship. First prize is 100% tuition free. Second prize is 50% tuition free. Third prize is 20% tuition free. This is much easier to apply. If you have a high academic score you can almost get the full scholarship.

Distinguished Foreign Students Scholarship

  • Applicants must be foreign students who have been enrolled in BUAA for one year in general.
  • Students who are awarded Scholarship of Excellent Study will be 1%- 5% of total foreign students studying in BUAA.
  • The amount of first prize, second prize and third prize is 3,000 Yuan, 2,000 Yuan and 1,000 Yuan respectively.
  • You should apply this scholarship in May.

CUCAS Advice: This scholarship is easy to apply. If you are the top 10 students in your class, you may get the first and second prize. This is kind of supplement of the self-supported scholarship. You can apply both of them. This is just concern about your excellent results in recent academic year. 

Generally speaking, it is easy to get the scholarship in China. If you are the  No.1 at your high school or university, you can easily get the full scholarship. If your school has cooperation with China’s university, you can get the government scholarship. You can also do your best after you enter the university. You still have chance to apply the self-supported students scholarship and the distinguished students scholarship.
