New Fellowship Opportunities for Fall 2018

We are pleased to announce two new fellowships for students applying to the Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Fall 2018. Our new Diversity Fellowship and Young Professionals in China Fellowship are offered to students who can demonstrate how their diverse backgrounds and experiences will enhance classroom discussion. The HNC welcomes a diverse student body to our bilingual community, where we maintain a deep commitment to open academic inquiry and mutual understanding.

Diversity Fellowship
This $10,000 fellowship will be awarded to a limited number of students who can demonstrate how their diverse backgrounds and experiences will enhance classroom discussion based on a short-answer question. Aspects of diversity may include race, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, socio-economic status, and disability, among others.

Young Professionals in China Fellowship
This $10,000 fellowship will be awarded to a limited number of students who have spent at least 12 months working full-time in Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, or Macao in any field. Students must answer a short-answer question to demonstrate how they will bring their work experience in China into the HNC classroom.

We are continuing to offer HNC general fellowships to 100% of students who apply for financial aid by the application deadline, as well as the following specific fellowships below. We are able to offer these fellowships thanks to the generosity of the HNC alumni community and other donors. 

International Scholar Fellowship
This full-tuition fellowship will be awarded to an international student (non-US citizen or dual citizen) enrolling in Fall 2018. Please note that applicants to the HNC Certificate/Johns Hopkins SAIS MA would receive full tuition funding for the Certificate portion of the program only.

Student Leader Fellowship

Students who have successfully completed one year in the US-China Strong Ambassador Program or completed one year as a Project Pengyou Chapter Leader by the time of enrollment at the HNC will be considered for this $10,000 fellowship. 

US-China Exchange Fellowship
Students who have successfully completed a US government-supported Chinese language study program that includes a minimum of 8 weeks of study in China prior to the time of enrollment will be considered for this $10,000 fellowship.

Eligible US government-supported programs include, but are not limited to: Chinese Language Flagship Program, Boren Award for International Study, Critical Language Scholarship Program, Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowship, Fulbright Awardee for study or research in China, Benjamin A.
