Zhongnan University Scholarship Program
About the Program
Participants will receive a scholarship from and be hosted by Zhongnan University
of Economics and Law (ZUEL), partner university of SBU’s Confucius Institute. ZUEL
is located in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province and one of the most ancient cities
in China. Wuhan is a huge political, economic, and cultural hub – the biggest financial,
industrial, and commercial centers in Central China. With its intriguing contrast
of old and new, Wuhan is attractive to international visitors.
Cultural excursions include the ‘Bund’ in Shanghai, the Three Gorges, the Terracotta Warriors, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall of China.

- Try to interact with the local students as much as possible. They are really friendly and willing to show you around. - Participant, Summer 2015
- The classes were a lot smaller and more intimate. There was more hands-on activities such as excursions to learn about Chinese medicine and acupuncture. There was a greater sense of community within the classes. And of course, the topics and viewpoints were different. -Participant, Summer 2015
