The award honors personal achievement, leadership, and success in reaching beyond professional and disciplinary boundaries. The recipients are Chinese alumni and former Chinese visiting scholars who are citizens of a country in the greater China area (mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau) and/or a person of ethnic Chinese origin.
