摘要: 近代地理留学在民国时期未然兴起,主要有自费,官费和中英庚款三种途径。在海外,中国地理留学生形成三大中心,即:中法里昂大学地理系,英国利物浦大学地理系和美国克拉克大学地理系。地理留学生学成归国之后,在地理学术研究和地理人才培养上都贡献甚大。朱家骅是民国地理留学的主要推动者。

Abstract: 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.

Key words: modern China, students overseas of geography, history of geography
