China’s Vice Minister for Education Hao Ping visited the Notre Dame campus Tuesday (April 9) at the head of an official delegation of Chinese government and educational leaders.
The principal reason for Vice Minister Hao’s visit was to sign and celebrate an agreement between the University of Notre Dame and the Ministry of Education’s China Scholarship Council (CSC), whose Secretary General, Liu Jinghui, was also a member of the delegation.
The CSC already supports numerous graduate students from China pursuing doctoral degrees at Notre Dame, but the agreement signed today by Notre Dame’s provost, Thomas G. Burish, Vice Minister Hao and Secretary General Liu will provide scholarships enabling some 20 additional Chinese students to enroll in Notre Dame’s Graduate School.
