This paper reveals that during China's Republican Period, students studying geography overseas supported their study aboard program mainly through self-funding, governmental fellowships or the Sino-British Indemnity Fund respectively. As a result, Chinese students usually studied in three institutes: School of Geography at Clark University, Institute of Geography at Franco-China University at Lyon and Department of Geography at Liverpool University. I argue that the returning students contributed to Chinese geographical research and students training. Beyond this official narrative, Zhu Jiahua (Chu Chia-hua) was the main figure who patronized the geography students studying abroad during this period.
