Become a CNYTrust Scholar

How CNYTrust can help

Our goal at CNYTrust is simple: we are committed to improving the quality and access to education for China’s rural children. Through our Scholarship scheme, we hope that students will not only have an opportunity to interact with the education system early on – through our Supporting Migrant Schools Program – but also have a perpetual impact by committing their futures to education.

In selecting our Scholars we look for those who:

  • Have extenuating financial circumstances (our focus is on helping those who could not otherwise afford to pursue their educational aspirations)
  • Have excellent academic credentials
  • Are pursuing educational degrees and have an interest in China’s educational system

What we ask of our Scholars

At CNYTrust we believe that our Scholarships are the beginning of an important relationship: between CNYTrust and its Scholars, and more importantly, between our Scholars and the children we seek to empower. As with all relationships, nurture is the foundation and so we expect our Scholars to demonstrate their passion for education, work diligently to achieve excellent grades at University and act with honesty and integrity at all times.

Our Scholars agree to:

  • Commit one day a week to teaching in a School of CNYTrust’s choice, throughout the duration of their Scholarship
  • Update CNYTrust regularly on their academics and their progress on securing educational positions after University
  • Be part of the Capital Normal University Committee at least once during their Scholarship, the University-recognised society that is responsible for all Scholars

What our Scholarship provides

  • Funding – typically 3,200RMB per University year, although this is at the discretion of the Trustees and may vary according to the number of Scholarships awarded and the quantum of donations in each year
  • Access to teaching early-on – Scholars teach once a week in our partner Scholars
  • Mentorship – frequent interaction with our Trustees, and outside Advisors, to help develop our Scholars future potential
