Scholarships for Chinese Students in Canadian Universities

By Sam Moser September 20, 2012 (Updated December 3, 2019) 1 min. read
Chinese International Student Scholarship

It is no longer news that China has become a key player in the global economic system. Over the past few decades, China has been making waves in manufacturing, international trade and in the provision of skilled manpower across the globe. Developing a skilled manpower base does not just happen. It takes a lot of effort. In this regard, China is making things happen by giving scholarships to its citizens to study abroad.

Sending Chinese Students Abroad

For over 34 years, China has been implementing a foreign student policy. Since 1978, over two million Chinese students have received education in foreign universities across the globe (including Canada). The aim of this policy is to ensure that these students have the necessary technical skills and qualifications that will help them contribute to development in China after their programs.

Apart from those sponsored by the Chinese government, there are private-sponsored international students of Chinese origin in foreign universities too. These ones are sponsored by their parents who want them to acquire vital skills abroad.   For any Chinese student looking to study in a Canadian university, they would require a study permit.  Niren & Associates has extensive knowledge working with Chinese students who want to study in Canada.

The Canada Initiative

Recently, the Chinese government awarded scholarships to 14 Chinese PhD candidates in Canadian universities. This award is called the Chinese Government Scholarship for Outstanding Self-financed Students Studying Abroad program. In an elaborate ceremony in Ontario, each of the students was given a check for $6,000 by the Chinese Consul General Fang Li. According to the Consul General, this award was a gesture of support from the Chinese government. It is also meant to encourage about 56 other PhD candidates in Canadian universities in Ontario and Manitoba. China has up to 70 doctoral candidates in Canada and these students can also apply for the scholarship.

Supporting the Youth

China has a very large population of foreign students in Canada. In 2010, there were about 105,000 Chinese students studying in Canadian universities. The purpose of the Chinese Government Scholarship for Outstanding Self-financed Students Studying Abroad program is to help Chinese students abroad achieve their goals. This is definitely a worthwhile project and other countries can learn a thing or two from China.

Our experience with the team at VisaPlace has been absolutely amazing. Special thank you to Nadia Bakhtiari whom we had the pleasure of partnering with. Nadia was attentive, empathetic, knowledgeable, professional, friendly and accessible. She provided guidance and kept us in the loop every step of the way. We were so impressed with the professionalism and exceptional client experience from VisaPlace that we partnered with them for both our PR application and our citizenship application. Thank you VisaPlace and thank you Nadia!

We were switched legal teams 3 times within our time there.( This was not our doing) We weren’t impressed at all with the service almost all the way through our experience. Our review would have been 1 star. The response time was awful. To get in contact with our attorney was so difficult. And not thorough. Almost at the end, when we were almost ready to file, we got switched again, but this time, we are thankful. The attorney we got then was Andrew Diamond. He is fantastic and the reason for the 5 star rating. This is his rating. He was phenomenal. Absolutely amazing and prompt with response time and very knowledgeable, thorough and so helpful. We couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you Andrew for all you did for us!

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Applying for my E2 Visa was so overwhelming for me. As soon as I engaged VisaPlace all that worry and stress was gone. They guided me through the entire process and set me up for success! I would 100% recommend using them for any of your Visa Needs.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!
