Dear Old Boys,
Re: Exclusive scholarship opportunity for a Palmerston North based kiwi student to study at Duke Kunshan University
We have been made aware of this opportunity earlier today: Palmerston North’s Friendship City, Kunshan (near Shanghai) has generously offered a full scholarship to one student from Palmerston North to study a 4 year undergraduate programme at Duke Kunshan University from August next year. Duke is one of the most prestigious universities in the US and this is their first China-based partnership campus, established in 2013.
The ideal candidate would be someone who:
· has keen interest in studying in China and would commit to a 4 year undergraduate programme (NB: They don’t need to speak Chinese – because it’s a Duke university campus the courses are taught in English, though the student will be learning Chinese as part of their studies).
· Has achieved (or is likely to achieve) university entrance and can get their school to write a letter of support.
· Is interested in a liberal arts or science degree – they will have the opportunity to explore a variety of subjects and build a broad base of knowledge before selecting a major in one of the following interdisciplinary majors: Environmental Science/Chemistry, Environmental Science/Public Policy, Global China Studies/History, Political Economy/Political Science, Applied Mathematics and Computational Sciences/Math, Material Science/Physics, Global Health/Biology or Global Health/Public Policy.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Toni Grace, International Relations Manager at the Palmerston North City Council (Toni.Grace@pncc.govt.nz), before 21 December, 2017.
