Doctoral Student Zhe Wang Receives Prestigious Chinese Scholarship

Zhe Wang, a fifth-year PhD student in the Developmental and Biological Psychology PhD program, has received China’s most prestigious international graduate student scholarship, the “Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad.”


This highly competitive award was established in 2003 by the Chinese government with the purpose of rewarding the academic excellence of Chinese students studying overseas—the vast majority of whom are not funded by the Chinese government (i.e., self-financed). Only those with outstanding performance in their PhD studies are considered by the award selection panel and no more than 500 young talents are granted the award each year all over the world.
