Mr Yanjie Zhang wins 2010 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad
30 November 2010
Our group member Yanjie Zhang has been awarded the prestigious 2010 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad by the China Scholarship Council.
The China Scholarship Council is the Chinese Ministry of Education’s non-profit organization that provides student financial aid to Chinese citizens and foreigners to study abroad or in China. Founded in 2003, this award is based on academic merit with the purpose of rewarding the academic excellence of Chinese students overseas who are not funded by the Chinese Government. Only students with outstanding academic performance are considered by the award selection panel. The award further encourages students to return to China for work or to serve the country in other channels after receiving their degree abroad. In 2010, a total of 506 awards were given worldwide, with 36 Chinese students in Germany receiving awards.
Mr. Zhang works on his PhD at Goettingen University and IAMO. Congratulations to Yanjie for his outstanding achievements. picture
