To further promote the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) and encourage those intermediate- and advanced-level Chinese learners, the Confucius Institute at San Francisco State University (CI at SF State) joined the Chinese Testing International (CTI) to organize special HSK 4-6 tests to identify top-score winners for "High Score Scholarship" in North America on December 3, 2017. Professor Liping Feng, Chinese Director of CI at SF State, took initiatives in leading the faculty and staff at the Testing Center to monitor the tests. The Testing Center of CI at SF State publicized the rules for the tests and received over thirty registrations from across nation to participate in the tests, demonstrating their Chinese language proficiency and challenging themselves for winning the scholarship.

After the examination, CTI ranked the candidates according to their country (US, Canada) and levels (HSK4, HSK5, HSK6). On January 17th, 2018 the winning list was announced and 26 outstanding candidates in North America won HSK4-6 "High Score Scholarships". 5 winners were at HSK Level-4, 6 winners at HSK Level 5, and 2 winners at HSK Level 6 from the US. 5 out of the 13 winners in the US, nearly 40%, are from the Testing Center of the CI at SF State. Congratulations to all winners from CI at SF State for their success in the tests and being awarded Scholarships for them to travel to and study in China!

As the first Confucius Institute in the western United States, the CI at SF State has been devoted to teaching Chinese language and culture and offering testing services to all level Chinese language learners on campus and in northern Californian communities. Since it held the first HSK internet-based test in the US in December 2011, the CI at SF State has provided the examination service of HSK (Chinese Proficiency Test), HSKK (Chinese proficiency oral test), YCT (Youth Chinese Test) and CTCSOL (Certificate of Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages) to thousands of students and professionals. It is one of the few test centers in North America that offers all Chinese tests designed by CTI. CI at SF State has strived to provide high quality and professional testing services with the global recognized Chinese standard tests. It’s expected that more learners at all levels will continue to learn Chinese language and culture when their achievements are recognized by taking HSK tests. CI at SF State is always ready to serve all students and help them reach their goals in studying
