Mozambican students receive Chinese ambassador scholarships

Twelve undergraduates from the University Eduardo Mondlane (UEM) of Mozambique were rewarded the Chinese Ambassador Scholarship on Thursday.

The scholarship was established by the Chinese embassy in Mozambique this year to reward local students with excellent academic performance in Chinese learning.

Speaking at the rewarding ceremony held on the UEM campus, Vice Dean for Administration and Recourses of UEM Claudio Mungoi said the scholarship will inspire more people to know about China and provide more opportunities for students to improve their academic performance.

"I would like to believe that more Mozambicans are going to be able to express themselves in Chinese, with the support that the scholarship brings," said Mungoi.

Chinese Ambassador Su Jian said Chinese language helps students explore the vast world, build their own career and inherit the friendship between the two countries.

All the 12 beneficiaries majoring in Chinese language, literature and culture were students in the Confucius Institute of UEM.
