In January, 2012, the CWRU community adopted the first ever Plan for Internationalization (Phase I). By collaborating with and supporting faculty, staff, and students, many of the measurable recommendations set forth in the Phase I have been met or are on target to be met within the coming years. Moreover, CWRU’s vision and mission as set forth in CWRU’s new strategic plan 2013-2018 Think Beyond the Possible demonstrates a continuing commitment to promoting international endeavors and expanding CWRU on the world stage.

Phase II of the Plan for Internationalization concentrates more on graduate and professional students, research, and alumni. In addition, Phase II contains several specific recommendations—such as the recommendation regarding communication—that will provide the infrastructure and support to move the university towards its objective of fully realizing its international potential.

This past spring, CWRU met with Ambassador Sun Guoxiang, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in New York to discuss the scholarship program and in August a memorandum of understanding was signed formalizing the commitment.

The opening of the scholarship application process coincides with the announcement of the United States and the People’s Republic of China approving a reciprocal visa agreement. The new arrangement will allow American and Chinese students to receive multiple-entry visas for a longer amount of time, in essence increasing the ease of students traveling back and forth.

Students interested in applying for one of the scholarships should contact the Office of Education Abroad at studyabroad@case.edu.
