3. Selected participants will receive their scholarships during the Summer Programme. However, scholarship recipients must attend for the full duration of the summer programme. Failure to do so will result in the forfeiture of the scholarship in full, requiring a full refund of the scholarship by the disqualified recipient.

4. Scholarships are granted mainly based upon consideration of academic performance and financial status, among other factors. The country of origin of the applicants will also be taken into consideration to promote a balanced representation of participants from different countries.

For Chinese Mainland applicants, the granting of scholarship is solely based on financial need. Therefore, a certificate of financial status must be submitted to prove the financial status of the applicant. This certificate may be issued by the applicant’s university or local authority. Before applying for the Academy’s scholarship, applicants are encouraged to exhaust other possible means of financial assistance and it is recommended that applicants also consult their own universities and institutions regarding financial assistance.

5. Application for scholarship shall be submitted in a separate document indicating the type of scholarship. Applicants could submit any additional documents they consider helpful to demonstrate their academic ability and financial status.
