On The September 17, 2020


The memorandum of understanding between the Université de Lyon and the China Scholarship Council (CSC) stipulates that the Lyon Saint-Étienne site’s institutions will host around thirty Chinese doctoral students per year.

The China Scholarship Council (CSC) provides the Chinese Ministry of Education (MoE) with student mobility scholarships for doctoral students. The Université de Lyon has signed an agreement with the CSC to award around thirty doctoral scholarships each year to the Université de Lyon member institutions. Funding periods can be anywhere between 6 and 48 months.

The 2020 edition resulted in 21 successful applications out of the 29 submitted, with funding ranging from 36 to 48 months.

This year, the CSC will once again provide funding for doctoral scholarships enabling Chinese students to study for their PhD in one of the Université de Lyon's member institutions.
