Your school sounds like a dynamic and exciting place. It's great that you're
now a member of the iSchool group.
There's a scholarship scheme sponsored by China and my university, UCD, that
will fund doctoral students visits or study at UCD. If you think any of your
students might be interested in studying at our iSchool at UCD, could you let
them know about this opportunity? Following is additional information.
UCD & China Scholarship Council (CSC) - UCD CSC Scholarship Scheme 2012
This scheme aims to attract some of the very best students from China to UCD
and to promote UCD within China as an attractive destination for graduate
research programmes. It allows Chinese students to apply for a research visit
to UCD for a period of 6 - 24 months as part of their doctoral education or a
4 year, funded, full time UCD PhD degree programme in UCD.
Securing a UCD CSC Scholarship is a two stage process:
? Stage 1: The student applies to UCD and upon approval is given an offer to
carry out their doctoral programme under the supervision of a UCD academic.
? Stage 2: The student uses the UCD offer letter to apply to the China
Scholarship Council (CSC). Only when the student has been approved in both
jurisdictions is the scholarship awarded.
? All disciplines
Full Proposal Deadline: 27 Jan 2012
