  • Investing in the Brightest

Scholarships By funding a scholarship, you support the beneficiary students not only financially, but also intellectually and emotionally. With the generous gifts from a1umni and friends, now we can provide scholarships for 8.7% of the students and stipends for most of the students from poor families. However, those students only account for a very small portion of all the elite students.Currently,our scholarships and stipends funders include Guangjiong Zhou, Ren Wang , and Wan’s. We sincerely welcome more sponsors to extend the honor and support to more students at the mechanics.
