CSC Scholarship Results - 2012

Recommended Posts

Brian US

Congratulations to all winners this year and I'm sure you have already settled in China! For those that missed out and still want to apply for next year, or want to help out new applicants, please visit us at CSC Scholarship - 2013 General Discussion for the next round.

We have spent months putting together applications for the 2012 CSC Scholarship and now the waiting begins. I want to once again thank the community here for another great round. Each year we strive to improve and compile all the information to make it easier for all scholarship hopefuls.

The CSC Scholarship - 2012 topic will have information on the application process. Please keep discussion in this topic to the CSC Scholarship results. Last year's discussion on results may be found here.

**We don't know how/why the status of the online application changes. It is possible to still receive the scholarship without it changing.

***Do research before posting questions about specific universities. Don't simply ask "What are my chances of getting into the engineering program at A university?" Follow up by contacting them and asking more about the program, so you can contribute to the discussion. For information on specific schools you may also look under the new section Universities in China.

I want to start off with some basic information to see how everyone applied:

1) What is your native country? U.S.

2) Where did you apply? The Chinese Embassy in Washington D.C.

3) When did you apply? Early February 2010

4) When was the deadline? April 30th

5) Have you applied for the scholarship before? No, this was my first time.

6) What program did you apply for? Two year language program followed by a three year master's program in Chinese Accountancy.

7) What schools did you put for your preferences? 1. Tsinghua University 2. Beijing University 3. Renmin University

8 ) Did you apply for your school of choice beforehand? No

9) What agency number did you use? Tsinghua University

10) Where did you get your physical done? Used my Chinese physical from enrolling at Beijing Language University in September 2009.

11) How did you get your documents notarized? Just paid $5 to get an official sealed transcript from my university in the U.S.

12) Where do you get official Chinese red stamps? I do not know, but I would like to start a collection.

Finally, for those getting results:

13) Were you accepted for the scholarship, if you were not then why? I was accepted for the scholarship starting September 2010.

14) How were you notified? By e-mail

15) When were you accepted/rejected? Accepted late July 2010

16) What school and program were you accepted to? Renmin University for one year language program and three year master's program.

This is where your application will be going:

Steps

1. You send your application to a third party representative of CSC (maybe your school).

2. The third party (OR you can apply directly) sends application to your native country's Chinese Embassy.

3. Your native country's Chinese Embassy sends your application to the Beijing CSC office.

4. The Beijing CSC office sends your application to your selected schools.

5. If and when a school accepts you, your acceptance is sent to the Beijing CSC office.

6. The Beijing CSC office sends your acceptance to your native country's Chinese Embassy.

7. The Chinese Embassy sends your acceptance and all needed documentation to you.

At any step of this process your application may be rejected. Again we don't know why, how, or when the decision is made. In the end, the school gets a final say on whether you receive the scholarship or not.

I know the scholarship results are released very late for those planning to move across the world, but please be patient. For most applicants, you will receive your results around June and July. It may be possible to contact the school directly to inquire about your application. Keep in mind that your application may have been sent to another school that was not one of your preferences. In this case the other schools will not have any information.

The CSC scholarship is a huge collaborative effort, and I'm glad we're in this together. Good luck everyone!

Can anyone comment on the partial scholarship and what it provides for? I was told by Peking University lodging, living allowance, and medical insurance would be provided. Does this include any books, travel expenses, food, etc? The hefty 60,000 RMB tuition price tag would go over better if I didn't have to worry about such things :P

The partial scholarship generally only provides tuition. Depending on the school sometimes at the beginning of the semester they will deposit extra money for books. I'm pretty sure partial scholarships gets this covered. The monthly allowance is for any miscellaneous expenses, like food and travel.

With Brian's permission, which I haven't asked for as I'm sure I'd get it, I'm going to butt in here and add a little something.

First off, massive thanks to Brian for organizing the CSC topics and keeping everyone as informed as possible, and thanks also to those who participate.

Second, now that your status is shifting from CSC applicant to actual student of Chinese, I'd like to point out that there's a massive amount of information available on this forum beyond the CSC, both on life and study in China, and on the language. If you'd like to ask questions about the university you're going to, have a quick look at our University Index, find the right institution and ask away. We can't guarantee answers, but that is the best way to get them. If you have any other questions, there's a search box up at the top right and a forums listing - if you can't find your answer, start a new topic and ask.

Best of luck to all.

Thanks roddy, even though I'm really tempted to fill your post with cute emocons :twisted:

For those first coming to China, don't worry about textbooks. If you can't easily download them free online, you probably won't pay more than $10. I think I still have my $200 textbook back home for my law class in the states.
