GCS Introduction in Chinese

Learning and scholarship at Notre Dame has always aimed for international reach with a universal and positive impact. Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the University of Notre Dame’s 17th president, is boldly leading the advancement of the vision for the University to serve as a “powerful force to heal, unify, and enlighten our world.” The University can only make progress in fulfilling this mission through continued international engagement and cooperation.

The Greater China Scholars Program (GCSP), designed to promote leadership and service, is the University of Notre Dame’s premiere merit Scholars Program for international undergraduate students. The Greater China Scholars Program has received generous support from the Li Ka Shing Foundation, the HS Chau Foundation, and numerous alumni, parents and friends

The GCSP, the University's largest scholars program designed for international undergraduate students, was created with the recognition of the critical importance of encouraging exceptional students from throughout the world to attend Notre Dame. The University not only aims to attract the region’s brightest, but also students with great capacity for global leadership and commitment to the betterment of society.

In addition to merit-based scholarships, the Program also provides Scholars with a full range of enrichment and mentorship programming to enhance their spiritual, intellectual, and leadership capacities throughout their undergraduate studies at Notre Dame.

The Greater China Scholars Program currently includes 44 enrolled students from Greater China. All selected Scholars receive Summer Enrichment Awards and are invited to participate in a program-funded Outward Bound Experience. The Scholars also gain access to an Ethical Leadership Course, Mentorship Programs, and other enrichment and community-building programming that are specially designed for Greater China Scholars and other merit Scholars at the University of Notre Dame. As a finalist invited to participate in the Greater China Scholars Weekend, you will also be considered for scholarship funding to help cover the cost of attending the University of Notre Dame.

To be eligible, applicants must apply to the University of Notre Dame by the application deadline, and currently be citizens of or residents in China, Hong Kong, Macau, or Taiwan. No further application to the scholarship program is needed.

The successful scholarship applicants will demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, a strong commitment to the betterment of society, and a promising capacity for global leadership.
