China Scholarships 2019 for International Students

China as we know today is one of the major powerhouse countries in the world not only in the economic sector but also in global politics, military, science, and education. As one of superpower country, China policy can have a major impact on the world that might shift global geopolitical and economic climate.

One of the reasons for China become a superpower country as we all know today is most likely through reforming its educational system, it started back in 1986 after China’s cultural revolution from 1966-76. China education system is a state-funded education program, where the education is free and funded from the national budget. It is an obligation for all Chinese citizen to have minimum nine years of education known as a compulsory education program that composes of six years primary education and three years secondary education (junior/middle school level), in some provinces it may also have five years for a primary education level and four years of a secondary level program that’s all fully funded by the government.

However, for higher education program there is no such fund from the Chinese government for its citizen, it is to encourage the students to compete for scholarships program for higher education level. In the 1980s Chinese government started to allow the establishment of a private institution or university for higher education level and since then, the number for an undergraduate degree and those who hold doctoral degree increase fivefold in 2005.

There are many scholarship programs for those who want to study in China be it a full or partial scholarship, government or institutional funded scholarship, and also specialized scholarship that targeted international students.
