The Confucius Institute Scholarship Program is also sponsored by Hanban to support foreign students, scholars and Chinese language teachers who study Chinese at partner universities in China.

There are two types of scholarships available for students who study abroad: the Scholarship for One-Academic-Year Students and the Scholarship for One-Semester Students. Both scholarships pay for registration fees, tuition, monthly allowances, on-campus accommodations and outpatient medical care once a year. In addition, the Confucius Institute sponsors students working towards their master’s or Ph.D. degree in Chinese Studies from Northwest University in Xi’an, China.
