Scholarship Programme-“International Dreams Come True Scholarship”  

 

 

 

 

Preamble

 

The International Boundless Fellow Alliance of Economic Development and Aid (hereafter the “Alliance”) has a strong belief that education is of crucial importance for the future of the world, as well as helping to fight against poverty. It has a vision to enhance the education and living standards of the population in the developing countries through providing education assistance to them. We have been putting this as the top priority among our various proposals and projects in the collaborations with our cooperative countries. 
 
Hence, the Alliance has established a scholarship program to offer financial support for students who are in need. Financial assistance will be provided to those students in our cooperative countries who want to pursue overseas studies. We aim at supporting the growth of the developing economy and hence, helping the underprivileged to get rid from poverty and uplift their living standards though this way.

Applicants must submit their applications to the Alliance through their own countries’ embassies in Beijing, PRC.
