Chinese government award for outstanding self finance students abroad
The Chinese government award for outstanding self-financed students abroad is an cash award established by the China Scholarship Council in 2003 for graduate students studying abroad.
The government chooses recipients annually based on a record of outstanding accomplishments during their PhD studies in any discipline. This award is the highest award the government gives to graduate students studying outside China. These students do not receive financial support from the Chinese government.
To date, the recipients include Chinese students studying in 33 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Australia, Singapore, and Canada.
The number of Chinese students leaving China to study abroad is more than half a million each year, making this award highly competitive. Currently, there are 500 students awarded yearly. Among them, ten extraordinary prizes go to the top awardees with a $10000 cash award and a certificate; the rest of the receipts win a one-time $6000 cash award and a certificate.
