This scheme aims to provide Chinese students who demonstrate both academic excellence and leadership potential with the opportunity to study for a DPhil at the University of Oxford.

The scholarships are supported jointly by the China Scholarship Council (on behalf of the Chinese Ministry of Education) and the University of Oxford.

Candidates must demonstrate both academic excellence and the potential to become a leader in their field, a decision-maker and opinion former within China. They must be prepared to return home upon completion of their studies.
What does it cover?

100% of university and college fees, a grant for living expenses (the rate for 2010-11 is £11,700), and one return airfare (China-UK-China).

Awards are made for the full duration of a student’s fee liability for the agreed course. The continuation of your scholarship each year is subject to an annual renewal process based on satisfactory academic progress.
