Seventy graduate students nominated by 14 of China’s top universities competed for 28 C-100 Leadership Scholarships given for outstanding academic achievement, demonstration of leadership, and community involvement. The 3rd Awards Ceremony was held at Tsinghua University on April 8. Attending the ceremony were members Wu-Fu Chen, Kai-Fu Lee, David Liu, Carter Tseng, Charles P. Wang and Ya-Qin Zhang, who each spoke on how they became successful.
Two new universities have joined the twelve original schools chosen by the Committee as most likely to graduate China’s next generation of leaders, with whom C-100 seeks to establish a relationship —the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in Chengdu and University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei.
Greater China members Lee, H.K. Chang, Paul Chu, and Carter Tseng sat on the committee that selected this year’s scholarship winners.
