Confucius Institute Scholarships

As a student of Chinese language and culture (all levels), you are eligible for a Confucius Institute scholarship, (refund of the tuition fees you have paid) if you pass the HSK test for your level (your teacher will tell you which level is appropriate for you) and if you write 400-500 words on how the Chinese language and culture course has helped you to develop in your academic or professional career.  

How to apply: there is no application form, but please inform the Confucius Institute Administrator (Oley Begum ) by Week 2 of teaching in Semester 2 that you intend to take the HSK test and write the 400-500 word statement.

Note: you must pay for your own HSK test but the test preparation is free for those students who achieve 80% attendance by the date of registration of the test. Please see here for HSK test information
