Red Pockets Scholarship

History

The Red Pockets Scholarship, or China Center Scholarship Fund, was created in 2004 thanks to the generous donations from the China Center’s annual fund drive in honor of its 25th anniversary.  In Chinese traditional culture, a red pocket is a monetary gift which is given during holidays or special occasions. Today the scholarship fund relies on donation from individual and corporate supporters of the China Center. Make a contribution now.

Purpose

The scholarship will provide an opportunity for University of Minnesota students to incorporate an educational or research experience in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Macau as part of their academic studies, internships, research, or professional training. The scholarship will be used for the payment, partially or totally, of travel or tuition. Awards are between $500 and $1,000.
