A total of $2.6 million was awarded to more than 8,500 students at three Chinese universities this year for preparatory computer science courses, the National Science Foundation reported on Wednesday.
The universities in Xi’an and Wuhan were among the winners of a $1.2 million grant from the NSF to support computer science education in China.
The NSF said that in the first quarter of the year, it had awarded nearly $2,300,000 to more, including a $900,000 grant to Xi’ans Tsinghua University and an $826,000 award to the Wuhans Tingting University.
The funds were allocated to the universities to enable students to take courses in the fields of computer science and mathematics and computer engineering.
“This is the latest installment in our efforts to build a world-class network of leading research institutions in this area, with the aim of developing cutting-edge technologies to transform the world,” said John Horvath, the director of NSF’s Office of Research in Education.
