The Youth of Excellence Scheme of China (YES China) Program, under the auspices of the Chinese Government Scholarship, is an initiative by the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China. This program aims to provide financial support to outstanding international youths who wish to pursue a Master’s degree in China.
