Financial Aid Available to Students and Scholars from the People's Republic of China for Study and Research in the U.S.
Reed, Linda A.
This publication provides general information for Chinese students and researchers about procedures for identifying and applying to appropriate sources for financial aid. It describes the types of financial aid available, provides information about financial aid available from U.S. academic institutions, and from, or in cooperation with, the Chinese government and Chinese academic institutions. Also, information is provided on where to obtain details about financial aid that is available from the U.S. Government and from foundations, business corporations, and professional associations in the United States, as well as from international organizations. Highlights from this publication include the following: (1) financial support for the entire stay in the United States should be arranged well in advance of arrival; (2) total financial support may require several sources; (3) employment is not a viable way to supplement income for foreign students or scholars in the United States; and (4) opportunities for financial aid are severely limited once a foreign student or scholar has arrived in the United States. Appendices include a list of the sites of U.S. higher education collections in China (in Chinese and English), the Chinese institutions participating in the University Development Project, and the Chinese institutions receiving support from the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia.
