The Harvard China Fund exists to advance the University's engagement with China. Established in late 2006, the Harvard China Fund is Harvard University’s “academic venture fund” for China. In service of the entire University, it supports teaching and research on China and promotes Harvard’s presence in China. The University has allocated $15 million to support the Fund, and has made a commitment to raise $50 million in the long term.

"Knowledge and education are the world’s most valuable resources. As we move deeper into the 21st century, greater China will play an increasingly important role on the global higher education stage, offering exceptional cultural and academic opportunities for Harvard faculty and students from across the University. Embracing these opportunities and engaging with individuals and institutions across the region is essential to ensuring that our teaching and our research continue to shape the future." - President Drew Faust, Harvard University
