According to the Beijing Municipal Education Commission, students sponsored by the Beijing Government can apply for a scholarship starting from Jan. 1 next year.

According to the plan, the Beijing Municipal Education Commission will sponsor 1,500 municipal university students and post-graduate students to study abroad.

The scholarship is divided into two categories. In the A category scholarship, 20,000 yuan in total will be awarded to every winner. It is offered to those Beijing undergraduates who will study abroad for more than one semester and less than one academic year.

The B category scholarship, which awards 10,000 yuan total for every winner, is offered to those Beijing undergraduate and post-graduate students who will study abroad for more than two weeks and less than one semester.

At present, only Beijing municipal universities' full-time undergraduate or postgraduate students can apply. Commissioned students and oriented students, undergraduate and post-graduate students who are studying abroad, government-founded non–university undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as Chinese doing overseas internships are not included in the scholarship.
