What is the UCR Population Scholarship?

 

It consists of 100% exemption support for the first three in-person courses. From the fourth course onwards, a 20% exemption is provided by IC-UCR for this population to pursue their Mandarin Chinese studies. However, this 20% exemption does not apply to virtual courses.

 

Who is the Scholarship Targeted at?

 

The UCR Population Scholarship is aimed at UCR population, including administrative staff: personnel appointed by UCR for administrative tasks with a minimum of two years in the institution, teaching staff: personnel appointed by UCR with a minimum of two years in the institution, and UCR students: regular and active students with socioeconomic scholarships 4 and 5 from all UCR campuses with a valid enrollment report.

 

What is its Objective?

 

To provide greater access opportunities for the UCR population (administrative staff, teaching staff, and students) to study Mandarin Chinese. This is in line with the principles of the Organic Statute of the University of Costa Rica, which in Article 4 states, "Respect for the diversity of ethnicities and cultures: recognizing the multi-ethnic and multicultural character of Costa Rican society, promoting respect for the diversity of cultural traditions, ways of life, and historical and cultural heritage," and Article 7, which states, "Planned university action: developing planned university action for continuous improvement to contribute to raising human development and the quality of life of the country's inhabitants."
