UK-China Scholarships for Excellence
The Scholarships for Excellence scheme is jointly funded by the United Kingdom and the People’s Republic of China to enable young and outstanding PhD students and post doctoral researchers in science and technology to study and conduct cutting edge research in each other’s country. The scheme forms a central part of the Sino-UK Partners in Education programme. Since its launch in 2005, over 100 UK and Chinese scholars have benefited from Scholarships for Excellence and its sister programme, Fellowships for Excellence.
There will not be a new tranche of the Scholarships for Excellence in 2011. However, funding will continue for those scholars already on the programme until 2014.
