The AustCham China Scholarship is an initiative of AustCham Beijing, developed in response to Australia’s growing economic, cultural and political relationship with China. The scholarship is designed for students who have a long term passion for strengthening this relationship through their business or cultural pursuits.
The purpose of the AustCham China Scholarship is to provide a comprehensive career development platform for Australians with a passion for developing a career in China or with a China focus. For these individuals the programme has been tailored to provide maximum industry exposure, networking and learning opportunities on a professional, cultural and personal level. A typical candidate will be in their final year of studies (or have recently graduated) and have undertaken China focused work experience or academic studies.
The AustCham China Scholarship is not like a regular scholarship. Unlike most academic scholarships it does not provide a fixed monetary amount to fund tuition or research costs. As a recipient of the AustCham China Scholarship, one will receive the following:
A paid full time graduate traineeship for a minimum of 9 months in China
Mandarin language training
Return flights to China
Full access to AustCham Beijing’s professional business network including sponsorship to attend industry events and seminars
Logistical support including airport pickup and accommodation assistance
