Each year, twenty scholarship finalists will be selected from Greater China (mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan) to attend the Greater China Scholars Weekend in Beijing. The Selection Committee, comprised of Notre Dame faculty, administrators, alumni and parents, evaluate the scholarship finalists through interviews and group activities that aim to assess the finalists’ capacity for global leadership and their commitment to the betterment of society. The Greater China Scholar finalists also meet faculty and alumni, and along with their parents, gain a better understanding of the University’s educational mission and global community. Each Greater China Scholars Weekend features a keynote address delivered by a University of Notre Dame academic or administrative leader. Scholars and their families are warmly welcomed to join the University of Notre Dame family during the Greater China Scholars Weekend.
