Scholarship Name China Scholarship Council
Scholarship amount Up to £1,000

Scholarship Deadline 7 March 2018

Imperial College London and the China Scholarship Council (CSC) have created a scholarship programme to enable talented Chinese students to undertake a PhD programme at Imperial. The scholarships build on Imperial's existing relationship with China. Imperial has extensive research links with Chinese research institutions and Universities. The CSC Imperial Scholarships are supported jointly and equally by both Imperial and the CSC. There are 15 full scholarships per year available for students to start a PhD. Students can apply for a PhD in any subject area offered by Imperial

Eligibility:

  • Chinese students with a strong academic background. 
  • Students must hold a PR Chinese passport (applicants from Hong Kong or Taiwan are not eligible). Applicants can either be resident in China at the time of application or studying overseas.
  • Students with prior experience of studying overseas (including in the UK) are eligible to apply. Chinese Imperial graduates/Masters students are therefore eligible for the scheme.

Successful scholarship applicants are required to return to China for a period of two years after completing their PhD.


What the CSC Imperial Scholarship includes

Each scholarship covers:

  1. International tuition fees
  2. Maintenance allowance equal to Imperial’s minimum stipend allowance in any given year (£16,553 in 2017-18) per year
  3. Up to £1,000 per year to attend conferences and cover other costs associated with their PhD
  4. One economy class return journey to China

Scholarships will support either three years of study for a PhD or four years in certain cases where the student is required to undertake a one year postgraduate degree prior to beginning their PhD.

How to Apply
Prospective scholars must follow all of the following steps in this order:

  1. Prospective PhD students approach individual Imperial departments and supervisors with details of their proposed project. It is essential that students make contact with departments/supervisors before submitting a PhD application
  2. Students submit a PhD application to Imperial, following standard College procedure. Please note: If applicants do not already meet the College's English Language requirements we recommend they sit a College approved English test as soon as possible. The deadline for applications to College is 31 January 2018.
  3. Imperial’s Registry processes the application and either rejects it or issues a formal conditional/unconditional offer. Please note: It can take 6-8 weeks for PhD applications to be processed
  4. Applicants must complete the CSC application on the CSC website between 29 January 2018 - 7 March 2018. Applicants are required to attach the email confirming we have received your application which is sent upon sucessful completion of an application to study at Imperial College London. This deadline/timeframe is non-negotiable.  Instructions to complete this application are available via the CSC website.
  5. Each Department is required to submit the completed CSC Imperial Scholarship Application Form. The form is available via the Information for staff webpage and should be submitted to Student Financial Support by midday on 9 February 2018.
