In 2013, the CPE program welcomed 20 students from 15 different countries (primarily Eurpe and the US) with diverse educational and work backgrounds. As part of the CPE program, these students had the opportunity to attend many international meetings and symposiums pertaining to China as well as to hear from leading global experts on a variety of China-related topics.

Each year, the CPE program plans to offer 4-8 full scholarships (Chinese Government Scholarship and Shanghai Government Scholarship A type) which support tuition and housing and 2-5 partial scholarships (Shanghai Government Scholarship B type) which support tuition. For self-fund students, the school will offer different kinds of scholarship to support the second year of study. In 2012, 14 of our 21 CPE students won full or partial scholarships.
