With the advancement of higher education, many colleges have given increasing attention to talent introduction. On the other hand, the association rule mining technique is a useful method which extracts the useful association rules from the complex data repositories. This study takes the example of 245 academic staff from Zhejiang University of Finance and Economics, China and uses Apriori algorithm to explore the association rules on whether an academic staff can obtain the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) within three years after s/he is recruited to the university. The aim of this study is to better introduce talents for colleges so that the academic levels of colleges can be improved. The results of association rule mining have shown that having published high quality papers such as SCI paper and SSCI paper has an important effect on the probability of academic staff to obtain NSFC within three years. Besides, the grade of PhD school has also an effect on the probability of academic staff to obtain NSFC within three years. The higher the grade of a staff’s PhD school is, the easier for him to obtain NSFC within three years.
