Yenching Academy Scholarship

Yenching Academy is an opportunity to pursue a two-year, interdisciplinary masters degree in China Studies at Peking University in Beijing. Academy courses are available in both Chinese and English; it is possible to complete the degree with courses taught in English. Yenching Academy seeks each year to select a cohort with broad academic and geographic representation who are eager to learn more about China. Candidates are not required to have Chinese language experience but should have a strong interest in China. Applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree by August in order to accept the scholarship.

Currently enrolled students must apply through WashU by the campus deadline in order to be considered  for the national competition. Students may not apply directly for the fellowship without being nominated by their undergraduate university. Contact Dean Taylor directly for more information about the endorsement process.
