Scholarship Information

The Associated College in China program has scholarship opportunities available for all students. Fulbright-Hays GPA and ACC Scholarships are also available.

Scholarships will be applied to your tuition balance (cannot be applied towards living expenses while abroad).  As a recipient of the scholarship, you are required to complete the term fully and satisfactorily, comply with all program rules and regulations, and complete a program evaluation at the end of the term. As the scholarship is meant to promote human understanding and world peace, we expect you to carry out community service while you are in Beijing.  This can be something of your own choosing, and may be done on your own or with other scholarship recipients. 

If you receive a Fulbright scholarship, at the end of your study with ACC you will need to complete an on-line evaluation with Fulbright International Resource Information System (IRIS), the on-line instrument that provides the means for us to meet the U.S. Department of Education reporting requirements for the grant activities. IRIS will be contacting you directly with their website details and instructions.

Fulbright travel scholarships are also available. 
In accepting a travel scholarship, you must book your flight with an American carrier and depart and return to a US port.

ACC and Fulbright scholarships require the following:
Within 2 months of your return, you are expected to carry out an outreach activity to promote your experience with ACC.  Some examples of past activities include the following:

  • Presenting at an information meeting/public meeting
  • Sharing your experience in a class with your peers
  • Submitting an article in the student or local newspaper        

To apply for the Fulbright Hays GPA scholarships, applicants must be a citizen, national, or permanent resident of the U.S. (Non US citizens can apply for ACC scholarship funds).
