Description

On April 20, 2004, at the University of Nairobi in Kenya, Li Changchun, a senior official of the Communist Party of China, promised to double the number of Chinese government scholarships to Kenya from 32 to 64 per year. Chinese scholarships to Kenyan students began in 1998, with more than 100 students taking part since then. In 2010, the Chinese Ambassador Liu Guanyuan promised to work on allocating more spots for Kenyan students in Chinese institutions of higher learning, showing that this exchange has continued throughout the years. The amount and end date are unknown.
