  • My daughter has already secured admissions into one of the universities in China but we need help with funding. How do we apply for the scholarship?

    1. Kemi, there are three steps to take:
      – First, you need to go to the Chinese embassy in Nigeria to submit the relevant application documents for the CGS scholarship. A proof of your daughter’s admission will be helpful here.
      – If your daughter is recommended by the dispatching authorities at the embassy or consulate, you can send an application to the university in question for a Pre-Admission letter which will also indicate award of the scholarship.
      – Complete the online application and print a hard copy.

    2. sir is the embassy that accessible without any Offical appointment with them already?

    3. The best thing is always to call their general office line which you should be able to find on their website first to be on the safe side and to know whether they can help you in the first place.
