The Changjiang Scholars program (Chinese: 长江学者奖励计划; pinyin: chángjiāng xuézhě jiānglì jìhuà) is a higher education development program in the People's Republic of China provided by the Ministry of Education (中华人民共和国教育部) and Li Ka Shing Foundation (李嘉诚基金会). It was started in August 1998, and provides scholarship funding to allow well-known professors from China and other countries to work in China.

The number of Changjiang Scholars in a university's faculty is one of the indicators used in the Netbig (网大教育) Chinese university ranking.[1]
