Yet again, four outstanding postgraduates at Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT) in China were awarded the Dongke Zhang Scholarship by W/Prof Dongke Zhang FTSE at a ceremony held at QIBEBT in Qingdao on 7th March 2014.
This is the fourth round of awards (2013) of the Dongke Zhang Scholarships at Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The Dongke Zhang Scholarships were established early in 2010 by W/Professor Dongke Zhang FTSE and The Zhangs Family Trust to recognise and reward outstanding postgraduate research students, currently enrolled at Chinese Academy of Sciences, Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology.
Candidates are selected on their good manner, excellent ethical standards, hard working attitude and good research outputs in an area related to energy. With the support of their supervisors, candidates apply to a selection panel. The shortlisted candidates give a presentation to the Institute’s Postgraduate Research Committee before their applications are ranked and forwarded to W/Professor Zhang FTSE for his final confirmation.
At the ceremony, W/Professor Dongke Zhang FTSE told some 100 postgraduates and staff that he set up these scholarships to promote good citizenship, recognise and reward outstanding performance and encourage interested and able young people to choose science and research as their career.
