This program has the potential, if fully implemented, to provide up to $8 million in graduate student support.
Initiated by the Office of University Outreach and International Programs, the Office of Graduate Studies will partner with the China Scholarship Council (CSC). The fellowship will pay full tuition fees, living costs, round trip airfare to California, visa application fees, and the cost for health insurance for the first two years. UC Davis will provide each selected student with support for the following three years. The agreement is for four years with options to extend it upon mutual approval.
