The scholarship is intended for applicants with outstanding professional and educational merits who desire to build economic ties between China and India. It is sponsored by the school’s Education Development Foundation, as well as the Li Ka Shing Foundation, a charitable organization founded in Hong Kong. Li Wei, Associate Dean of the school’s MBA program, stated:
“India and China face many of the same challenges of a developing nation – urbanization, climate change, governance transparency and sustainable development. To meet these challenges, both countries need business leaders who are not only creative but also socially responsible with a commitment to make the world better. We created a scholarship with this purpose in mind. We want to invest in people who show exceptional potential to make a difference in this world.”
To apply for the scholarship, candidates must submit an essay explaining why they are deserving of the program and a fee of RMB 800. The scholarship covers tuition fees in its entirety, although students must still shoulder a miscellaneous fee of RMB 40,000 which includes lodging and accommodations. The due date for applications is June 29, 2020.
