“Lai Yiting’s identity is true, the information filled in is correct, the submitted materials are true and complete, and they meet the recommendation requirements, thus being qualified for a recommendation.” On June 30, with the last recommendation uploaded for Thai student’s application, the Confucius Institute of Suan Dusit University at Suphanburi (CISDUS) in Thailand has successfully completed the recommendation for the International Chinese Teacher Scholarship (Confucius Institute Scholarship) for 46 applicants, who will be enrolled before September 2020.
Affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Confucius Institute Headquarters extended the deadline for scholarship applications for the admission before September 2020 from May 10 to June 30. In order to cope with various uncertainties incurred by the pandemic, the CISDUS actively took measures to ensure a smooth progress of the scholarship recommendation. The teachers of the CISDUS promptly notified the relevant schools and students of the extension of the application deadline, patiently guided the applicants to correctly fill in the information and upload the required materials to the application system, constantly communicated and coordinated with those domestic universities, and carefully served for and helped the applicants with their application materials’ submission, all of which has been recognized and praised by relevant Thai schools, training institutions, applicants and domestic universities. Over the past years, the CISDUS has actively followed the requirements of the Confucius Institute Headquarters and tried to meet the needs of applicants in doing the recommendation for the International Chinese Teacher Scholarship (Confucius Institute Scholarship). Keeping the original intention in mind, the CISDUS is committed to serving for Thai people and promoting the exchange between Chinese and Thai languages and cultures.
