The China Scholarship Council (Chinese: ; pinyin: Guójiā Liúxué Jījīn Guǎnlǐ Wěiyuánhuì, CSC) is the Chinese Ministry of Education's non-profit organization that provides support for international academic exchange with China.[1] CSC provides both funding for Chinese citizens and residents to study abroad, and for foreign students and scholars to study in China.[2] The agency predominantly provides scholarships to individuals, including in batches allocated to specific foreign universities [3].

The CSC manages the Chinese government award for outstanding self finance students abroad.[1]

The CSC's elite-track funding mechanism for foreign exchange is the International Cooperative Program for Innovative Talents (ICPIT) program, which funds a small number of special training programs arising from collaborations between top Chinese and international institutions.[4][5]
