Did you know that sometimes that difference may be as little as $200? What may seem like a small amount to you or me can sometimes seem like the final obstacle for a student struggling to pay their way.

In response to the global pandemic, we established the 学生应急基金. This fund addresses immediate student need such as travel, 住房, 学生工资损失, 粮食不安全等. This fund provides the university with the flexibility and resources necessary to address student hardships as they arise.
