In the spirit of the document (2000) 29 of the Ministry of Education of China (MOEC), and in accordance with our university’s regulations on teaching and studentship management, the Measures of the Annual Review of Chinese Government Scholarship Status are formulated, with a view to bringing the benefits and effects of Chinese Government Scholarship (hereinafter referred to as “Scholarship”) into full play, better implementing the encouraging mechanism of the scholarship, fostering talents with good academic record and merits and further promoting their awareness of being diligent, law-abiding and friendly.
1.Scholarship students who have been studying in China for more than one academic year or who apply for the extension of scholarship upon the termination of planned study period should go through the Annual Review.
2.Criteria for the Annual Review:
2.⒈Scholarship students shall get “pass” in their Annual Review on condition that they endeavor to accomplish all the academic tasks, follow the teaching programs arranged by the university within the framework of the curriculum as well as extracurricular activities, have regular school attendance, observe ask-for-leave procedures, abide by university rules and regulations, show friendliness to China, score excellent achievements and are in good health.
2.⒉Scholarship students shall get “fail” in their Annual Review and thus their status of Chinese Government Scholarship shall be suspended for one year in any of the following cases:
