The New England—China Scholarship Program resulted from a relationship between the NEBHE Board and the Beijing Municipal Education Commission, which began by a visit to China by a NEBHE Board delegation in 2006. The scholarships are provided through the generosity of the Beijing Municipal Education Commission (BMEC) and its leader, Dr. Liu Limin. The Commission’s objective is to promote greater collaboration and exchange with New England higher education institutions.

Through the New England—China Scholarship Program, the BMEC will provide up to nine (9) full-year, full-time scholarships per year. At present, the New England—China Scholarship Program has a duration of three (3) years.

Scholarships will cover tuition and fees and are available for qualified undergraduate and graduate students from New England colleges and universities (public or independent). Individual scholarships will have a duration of up to one year, renewable upon review and application.
