China’s Hunan Association Uganda has offered scholarships to students at Uganda’s Makerere University.

Hunan Association Uganda signed a memorandum of understanding with the university on Friday.

Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe, vice chancellor of the university, said the scholarships aim to help students with difficulty in paying their fees.

The scholarships will go to university students studying Chinese at the Confucius Institute, Makerere University.

The institute was set up to spearhead the teaching of the Chinese and culture at Uganda’s premier university.
