Everyone wants a full scholarship. The Chinese government offers students a scholarship called the CSC, which covers tuition fees, accommodation, living expenses and insurance for the duration of their studies. The Confucius Institute Scholarship is as good as the Chinese Government Scholarship. However, this scholarship is restricted to Chinese language students.

Some students find that the best way to get a full scholarship is to apply to as many universities as possible for the Chinese Government Scholarship. But this is a negative thinking because you never know the university you can be accepted to, and whether you get the scholarship until you receive a notification or confirmation from the university.
