A new project is set to give 100 second-generation migrant workers in South China’s Guangdong province the chance to study in Peking University free of charge.
"The Dream Realization Project" was jointly launched at the end of last year by the Communist Youth League Committee (CYLC) of Guangdong Province and Peking University with the support of local media and companies.
According to the CYLC website, migrant workers in Guangdong aged between 16 and 30 years old, who have a technical secondary school education, can apply to the "Dream Realization Project" online until January 20.
The 100 successful candidates will be allowed to pick up one major from 12 options at the School of Distance Learning of Peking University.
Global Times reports those who are successfully enrolled by the university will study for a minimum of two-and-a-half years for a bachelor’s degree by online distance education.
