Sciences Po is a research university that believes that a bright mind should not be dimmed by financial difficulties. That is why there are many ways for students every year to apply to different scholarships and financial aid

As Sciences Po’s most international school, the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) knows very well how studying in another country can broaden students’ minds while giving them a sense of purpose to act for good on an international level. That is one of the reasons that led PSIA to establish with China Scholarship Council (CSC) a scholarship programme that allows Chinese students to follow one of the seven Masters programmes offered by PSIA.

Interview with Huayin Liu, Sciences Po’s chief representative in China, to learn more about this opportunity.

What is your role as Sciences Po’s chief representative in China?

Sciences Po set up its representation office in China in 2002. The office has three main missions: the first is to attract talented students in China to study at Sciences Po and, thereby, enhance our reputation in China as one of the world’s leading universities in social sciences.

Secondly, we help to establish and maintain good and healthy relationships with different partners in China, including universities, governmental organisations, private companies, etc. For instance, we coordinate with Peking University and Fudan University (Shanghai) in China to ensure that our three dual-degree Masters programmes run as smoothly as possible. 

And third, we support Sciences Po’s community in China, including alumni organisations in Beijing and in Shanghai, and any Sciences Po student looking  for internships or jobs in China. 

What is the CSC Program and how did you manage to conclude this partnership?

CSC is a non-profit institution affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Education, whose main job is to offer financial support to excellent Chinese students studying abroad, as well as foreign students studying in China. Sciences Po has been working with CSC for quite a long time. It holds us in high regard thanks to Sciences Po’s capacity of training talents who go on to work for international organisations. When they plan to train Chinese talents, they naturally turn to us.

With colleagues in Paris, we worked with the CSC to identify the most suitable graduate school at Sciences Po where Chinese students could complete a Master programme and be ready to pursue a career in international organisations. We also worked closely with PSIA to establish a process by which admitted students would be eligible for these new CSC scholarships. We are all delighted to have concluded this advanced partnership with a great number of full scholarships (tuition fees plus living fees) each year for Chinese students to study on any one of PSIA’s seven two-years Masters programmes.

As we say in Chinese, now “everything is ready and all that we need is an east wind”. Let’s hope the east wind will bring the most brilliant Chinese students to PSIA and help them accomplish their goal in the international arena.
