Approval and Notification

a: A selection committee will evaluate applicants’ materials under the principle of “justice, fairness and openness”.
b: The scholarship will be terminated if a student has one of the following cases:
-Defaulting the fees he/she has to pay.
-Receiving academic warning or drop out warning.
-Breaking university rules or the Chinese laws.

Scholarship Service Fee? Yes.

-How Much Can This Scholarship Save for You?
As you have seen in the "Category & Sum" section, actually, the scholarship would make you tuition-free students if you get the Category A, which is not as hard as you imagine at all. I guess it is really cool for everybody to study in a top-ranking university in China for $0 tuition. Moreover, with the Category A scholarship for master degree-RMB25000 ($4000), you can buy about 6 iPhone 6s, 5 iPhone 6s plus or live very comfortably for a year in Western China. Well, my mouth is watering!

-So What? How Much Do I Need to Pay?
You can see the amount of service fee for different program and level in the "Scholarship Type and Coverage" table above.
Students want to apply this scholarship need to pay CUCAS some service fee (the application fee is exempted). You can see the service fee amount when you apply your target program (about 10%-15% of the scholarship you would get). While you know, generally, some agencies would charge 40%-50% of the total scholarship as commission. You can do your math now.

-Can I Get Refund If I Didn't Get the Scholarship?
If you failed to get any of the scholarship, we refund you all you have paid. (For refund, you may contact zhanglulu@cucas.cn) Is it fair enough?
