The research suggests that Chinese students' motivations for attending graduate school in this US are not strongly influenced by the US-China trade war. Survey was taken by Chinese undergraduate and recently graduated students from universities in Henan, China. Survey was voluntary and could be taken in Chinese or English based on the respondent's choice. After the initial demographic questions and interest in studying abroad, students were asked to select their value on a five-point scale of 1- extremely important, 2- very important, 3- moderately important, 4- somewhat important, 5- not important at all.
