Confucius Institute for Scotlands SchoolsTianjin Scholarship

The Tianjin Scholarship is the only one of its kind in Europe.

Each year, we facilitate scholarships for school leavers in Tianjin, China. Scholars will study for 9 months at the Tianjin Normal University. The scholarship is funded by the Tianjin Municipal Education Commission (TMEC) in partnership with the Confucius Institute for Scotland’s Schools.

The highly competitive scholarship is open to applicants from 6th year pupils in Confucius Classroom Hubs partnered with TMEC. Applicants must be from a local authority with a Confucius Classroom Hub. The Tianjin Scholarship includes tuition fees, shared accommodation costs and monthly food allowance for the academic year. CISS also covers the cost of one HSK test fee.
