About this Fellowship
The Yenching Academy of Peking University offers a Master's degree in China Studies, a degree that is interdisciplinary in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
The Yenching Academy of Peking University aims to build bridges between China and the rest of the world through an interdisciplinary master's program in China Studies. This initiative brings together young people who have demonstrated a talent for leadership and innovation. Approximately 120 scholars are selected every year, with 80% being international students, and 20% from mainland China.
At Yenching, scholars are immersed in an intensive learning environment where they can explore China and its role in the world—past, present, and future. The Academy's goal is to shape new generations of global citizens with a nuanced understanding of China.
The Yenching Academy provides full fellowships to its scholars, and offers them a wide array of interdisciplinary courses on China within broadly defined fields of the humanities and social sciences. Working closely with their academic mentors, Yenching Scholars create their own study paths by choosing courses from six research areas. They participate in a variety of extracurricular activities and field studies, organized by the Yenching Academy, and designed by scholars themselves. Studying at the Academy is an exceptional opportunity to take part in intercultural exchanges and interdisciplinary learning, developing both personally and professionally.
Chinese language training is provided for all international students, in accordance with their level of proficiency. Prior knowledge of Chinese is not required.
Fully funded first year of master's degree, including tuition and fees, housing, stipend, and round trip airfare. Second year funding is available for those who maintain good academic standing.
