Sruthi Meka, Staff Reporter

Starting in the fall 2015 semester, a new scholarship program will grant two Case Western Reserve University students the opportunity to study abroad in China.

The annual program will cover tuition, basic living expenses and medical insurance for the accepted students. Travel and other personal costs will be at the students’ expense.

Students in any field of study are encouraged to apply to the program after selecting an institution in China that has been pre-approved by CWRU.

CWRU will send the applications to the Chinese Consulate General in New York by the middle of February of each year. Then, the China Scholarship Council will provide placements qualified students.

Accepted students will be able to immerse themselves in Chinese culture and gain exposure to different approaches to education. They will also be able to forge relationships with Chinese students and their families.

Students interested in applying to the program should contact the Office of Education Abroad for further guidance.
