Diversity Statement

The goal of the our admissions process is to further the mission of The Young Scientist Foundation of China, which includes connecting motivated students with passionate mentors, in order to provide a unique opportunity to embark on careers in science by engaging in meaningful scientific research. To best meet the needs of the diverse populations in China, and to achieve the goals of the foundation, HQYSF’s admissions process uses a balanced and holistic approach that considers an applicant’s academic metrics, research experience and letters of recommendation in order to achieve the educational benefits of a diverse group and future research community. The selection committee also recognizes that many applicants who are underrepresented in research come from geographically, socioeconomically and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds, and that people from these backgrounds are more likely to eventually serve disadvantaged, underserved and marginalized populations. As such, our admissions selection approach also encourages consideration of disadvantaged status, as broadly defined, in the decision-making process.

Young Scientist Foundation of China provides Student financial aid to Chinese citizens and foreigners to study abroad or to study in China, respectively.
