Chinese Government initiates "Project Yangtze" which provides special funds to leading researchers.


1998, August 24


The Chinese government initiates "Project Yangtze." Under this program, between 300 and 500 professors who are leading figures in their fields will receive a special subsidy of $12,000 per year on top of their normal salaries and welfare benefits. According to the Ministry of Education, the program "is aimed at easing the problem of a shortage of talented young scholars in the country." Ministry officials say that they hope the program will help increase the competitiveness of Chinese academia and create "a group of world-renowned masters."
