New Fellowship Opportunities at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center

The Hopkins-Nanjing Center has historically awarded financial aid to 100% of admitted students who submit the financial aid application by the deadline.  This year we are excited to announce several new fellowship opportunities for students applying to attend the HNC in fall 2015.  Thanks to the generosity of the HNC alumni and donor community, and in honor of the HNC’s approaching 30th anniversary, starting in fall 2015 we will be able to guarantee a Future Leader Fellowship to each incoming MAIS student in the amount of $10,000 per year*.  Future Leader Fellows will also be eligible for additional HNC fellowship funding over this guaranteed $10,000 based on need, merit, and availability. 

In addition, other new HNC fellowship opportunities in 2015-2016 will include two full-tuition Dean’s Fellowships: one for a MAIS student and one for a Certificate student.  In order to be eligible for this award, applicants must demonstrate academic excellence, outstanding leadership ability, and service to their communities.  The Dean's Fellowship is a one-year award, so MAIS students must reapply for consideration for second year funding.

To qualify for any HNC fellowships, including the Future Leader Fellowship and Dean’s Fellowship, applicants must submit the HNC Financial Aid Application by February 1.  This short two-page form can be found in the downloadable forms section of the online application.  Those wishing to be considered for the Dean’s Fellowship must also submit a supplemental essay answering the following prompt in 500 words or less:

Describe any service activity in which you have actively participated in your community and how this experience has helped prepare you to be an ambassador to the students at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center.

Completed HNC Financial Aid Applications and Dean’s Fellowship essays can be submitted to

*This financial aid package will be matched in the student's second year in the MAIS program in fall 2016 as long as he or she meets the minimum GPA requirements set by the SAIS Office of Financial Aid.
