Chinese Bridge World University Chinese CompetitionThe Chinese Bridge Competition is a world-wide contest for university students to demonstrate their talent and passion for the Chinese language as well as to promote understanding between China and the global community. Since its launch in 2002, over 50,000 students from more than 50 countries have participated in this annual competition sponsored by the Office of the Chinese Language Council International (Hanban) in Beijing.

All Queensland university students who are studying the Chinese language and culture are invited to compete for the top prize of a Confucius Institute scholarship covering tuition fees, travel, accommodation and living expenses while representing Queensland in the international finals held in Beijing.
