On the Insufficiency and Improvement of the Funding System for Graduate Students in China

Lan HONG, Xiangrong YIN, Shuhua WANG


The implementation of charging graduate students with education fees put forward higher requirements on the funding for graduate students. This paper introduces the main types of funding for graduate students and concludes that the problems arise in the current funding system: insufficient sources of funds; lack of information release platforms of “three assistants” funding; lack of reward incentives; lack of supervision and feedback mechanism on student loans. Based on the literature of student funding from domestic and abroad, combined with the practices in Beijing Wuzi University, the authors put forward suggestions on how to improve the university graduates funding system.
