BEIJING: The United States Educational Testing Service (ETS) has launched a scholarship program to recognize Chinese excellent test takers of its TOEFL and TOEIC.
ETS, the world's largest private educational testing and assessment non-profit organization, administers globally-recognized tests including TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) and GRE (Graduate Record Examination).
ETS plans to honor 80 well-performed students on the Chinese mainland who succeed in applying for studies abroad in 2010. The total sum of the scholarship is 100,000 US dollars.
"We are delighted to acknowledge outstanding academic achievement by Chinese students with the TOEFL and TOEIC scholarship program," said Phillip Tabbiner, President of the ETS Global.
Applicants must hold a grade point average of 80 or higher on a 100-point scale. Winners will be announced in May 2010.
