An Introduction to the Jinan Sister City Scholarship


The Jinan Sister City Scholarship has been set up by the Jinan Municipal People’s Government to offer academic development opportunities to residents and natives (people who were born there) from Jinan’s sister cities. This scholarship is not a fully funded scholarship which means that a significant part of the costs will have to be paid for by the student. The student is required to pay all the fees (accommodation, tuition and insurance) upon arrival. The scholarship will most likely be given before the end of the year. The maximum duration is only for one year, but is dependent on the scholarship type. The student can then reapply and the decision to grant the scholarship for another term will be based on the performance of the student.
