UGA Student Caitlyn Yu is Studying Abroad Through the 2013 Chinese Government Scholarship Award09.16.2013
Congratulations to Caitlyn Yu, a recipient of the 2013 Chinese Government Scholarship Award.
An International Affairs major from Acworth, Georgia, Caitlyn Yu is studying the Chinese language at Renmin University in Beijing, for this 2013-2014 academic year.
The Chinese Government Scholarship is offered by Chinese consulates abroad in order to strengthen educational exchanges and cooperation between China and other countries. UGA nominates students to the Chinese consulate in Houston, who makes the final selection for funding.
“I am very excited for the opportunity to go overseas once again. As an International Affairs major, traveling the world is a must. Studying, interning, and working abroad are critical experiences a person needs in order to truly understand other peoples and cultures,” said Yu. “I couldn't ask for a more suitable chance to experience the city, culture, and people of the place I hope to work at in the near future.”
