[photopress:Zhou_Ji.gif,full,alignright]The Cheung Kong Scholar Program, which is held each year, has attracted 131 young professors from foreign universities and research institutes to come and study in China for three years.
Minister of Education Zhou Ji said the program includes 71 professors from Chinese universities, most of whom have gained PhD degrees from foreign universities.
Scientists are given a professor seat at a top university in China and a preference for government funding for research.
The program was set up in 1998 by the Ministry of Education and Mr Li Ka Shing, Chairman of Cheung Kong Holdings and Hutchison Whampoa Limited.
