74 overseas students in NNU won Nanjing Municipal Government Scholarship for Overseas Students, including 54 overseas students from 14 countries in International College for Chinese Studies, through self-application, examination and recommendation by college and discussion by relevant departments, in accordance with the Notice of Nanjing Municipal Government on the Interim Measures for the Management of the Issuance of Nanjing Municipal Government Scholarship for Overseas Students and Notice on the Management of the Application for Nanjing Government Scholarship for Overseas Students.
In order to attract and encourage more excellent overseas students to study and do scientific research in Nanjing and scale up overseas students enrollment, Nanjing Municipal Government officially set up Nanjing Government Scholarship for Overseas Students in 2013. The scholarship program supports overseas students studying in Nanjing’s full-time regular colleges and universities (including non-governmental institutions of higher learning but excluding military academies) approved and established in accordance with relevant state regulations and offering higher education for academic qualifications, or friendly foreigners under non-diploma education programs in Nanjing. Nanjing Government Scholarship for Overseas Students reflects Nanjing Municipal Government’s concern for NNU’s education program for overseas students as well as its recognition for educational achievements in teaching overseas students Chinese language and culture. In addition, this scholarship is conducive to cultivating international elites who are familiar with China, amiable to China and supportive of China, further serving the overall situation of our national strategic and diplomatic work as well.
