A delegation from China Scholarship Council (CSC) and Chinese Consulate visited UC Santa Cruz faculty and students on October 25 as part of a meet and greet hosted by Global Engagement. This well-received, successful visit led to CSC expressing interest in growing its dedication to funding UCSC Ph.D. students.
UC Santa Cruz has had an agreement with CSC since 2017 to fund Ph.D. students in departments including Astronomy and Astrophysics, Earth and Planetary Science, and Ocean Science. The recent visit added 3 additional departments: Physics, Applied Math, and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
