Scholarship, Admission and Application of a Postgraduate Program
This paper aims to construct a game of admission and application behavior of a postgraduate program. It attempts to expand the decision of graduate school from one party model to two party model. It suggests that the interval of postgraduate program’s scholarship determines the decision made by applicants with different capacity and family background. Also, graduate schools will try to use scholarship as a tool to select students.
