37 SA students receive Chinese Government Scholarships

A sendoff reception was held at the Chinese Embassy in Pretoria for the 37 South African students who received Chinese Government Scholarships. Ambassador Tian of China and South African Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training, Mr. Mduduzi Manana attended the farewell reception.

The Chinese Government offers scholarships for South African students wishing to study at Chinese institutions. The  scholarships  are  awarded  for  undergraduate  (Bachelors),  postgraduate  (Masters  or  PhD)  or  non-degree Chinese language studies. However, preference is given for postgraduate studies.

The eligible students must have demonstrated interest in China and be committed to the development of South Africa.

The scholarships received were in the fields of science, engineering, administration among others.

Speaking to the awardees, some who will travel to China for the first time, both Ambassador Tian and Deputy Minister Manana advised the students to embrace this special opportunity as academics and to immerse themselves in the Chinese culture to further relations between the peoples of the two countries.
