Youths are future pillars and valuable assets of a society. The large rural youth population defines the sustainability of tomorrow’s labor market. Empirical studies consistently suggest that Chinese rural students’ educational development is under considerable socio-economic and cultural threats (e.g., unprivileged family SES & unsupportive rural parental ethnotheories) (Kong et al., 2021), while little is known about individuals’ agency in withstanding environmental adversity. In this light, this study draws upon the concept of academic resilience to investigate the internal protective factors of Chinese rural students. Data is drawn from the China Family Panel Studies (CFPS) 2018 survey (N = 384; 183 non-resilient & 201 resilient students). The independent sample t-tests displays that resilient and non-resilient students are different in their educational aspiration (t = -4.53; p <0.001), school satisfaction (t = -1.98; p = 0.048), buoyancy (t = 4.49; p < 0.001), learning effort (t = -9.44; p < 0.001), and self-regulation (t = 4.44; p <0.001). The results of binary logistic regression further suggests that rural students’ educational aspiration (β1 = 0.50; 95%; CI: 0.22 to 0.78; p < 0.001), buoyancy (β2 = -0.13; 95% CI: -0.25 to -0.02; p = 0.023), self-regulation (β3 = -0.07; 95% CI: -0.12 to -0.01; p = 0.017), and learning effort (β4 = 0.22; 95% CI: 0.13 to 0.32; p <0.001) predict their academic resilience. This study contributes to the existing scholarship by identifying the significant internal protective factors of Chinese rural students’ academic resilience. Authors:
