Generating innovation in urban planning: Applying the Ecosystem Service assessment to planning projects
The China Scholarship Council (CSC) is a government agency in China which provides scholarships to students for doctoral and postdoctoral studies abroad. UBC has developed an agreement with the CSC to be a preferred host institution for CSC scholarship holders. These scholarships will be awarded to students across a wide range of disciplines.
2020: The CSC online application opens between April 10 and April 30, 2020 (Beijing Time zone). CSC will notify applicants of the final results at the end of June 2020.
To be eligible to apply, applicant must be a citizen of the People’s Republic of China and does not have permanent resident status in another country. Please note the following:
In terms of student status, the applicant must:
Furthermore, the applicant must meet the academic and language requirements for admission to a UBC doctoral program. Individual programs may have additional requirements, please refer to specific Graduate Degree Programs for detailed information. To be eligible to apply, applicant must be enrolled in, have applied for, or will apply for admission to a full-time PhD program at UBC.
For complete eligibility criteria (in simplified Chinese), please visit the CSC website. If there is any inconsistency or conflict between the English and Chinese versions, the Chinese version shall prevail.
If a program wishes to recommend a potential CSC recipient for admission, the admitting program must commit to providing financial support that is adequate to cover tuition costs for the student for the duration of the CSC Scholarship (normally four years). UBC-V students will also be awarded the International Tuition Award (ITA, currently $3,200 per year), so programs are responsible for the difference between the student's tuition and the amount of ITA funding. Thus, the required commitment of funding from the admitting program (based on 2019-20 tuition fees) would be $5,576.74 (tuition of $8,776.74 less $3,200 ITA) per year.
The funds for this financial support can come from any combination of RA-ships, TA-ships or awards. Ongoing funding is conditional upon the student’s adequate academic progress in the program.
