Financial Goals and Gift Opportunities to Support the Harvard China Fund
The Harvard China Fund has a near-term goal of matching the University’s commitment of $15 million. The longer-term goal is to raise a total of $50 million in support of Harvard’s teaching and research mission related to China. These funds may be either for immediate impact, or may endow enduring priorities for Harvard’s commitment to China well into the future.

$1 million will name an endowed Fund for Harvard Students in China to support internships, service learning, and other student travel opportunities in China.
$500,000 will establish a Travel Fund to support student experiences in China.

$1 million will name an endowed Fellowship Fund for Students from China to provide full-tuition for one Chinese student at Harvard.

$1 million will name an endowed Scholar’s Fund for Research to support key areas of research through the Faculty Grant Program.
