This October, the Committee of 100 awarded scholarships to 54 students at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The program assists students whose families suffered in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, allowing them to continue their education.
Carter Tseng, who represented both C-100 and his Little Dragon Foundation, which awarded 66 scholarships, helped present RMB 360,000 to the 120 students at the October 19 ceremony. This is the second year of the C-100 scholarship program, which has disbursed a total of nearly $143,000 in awards. According to Give2Asia, which administers the program and organized the ceremony, Tseng “inspired the students to pass on the caring, charitable spirit that they experienced and give back to society when they have an opportunity to do so,” studying hard now so that they can contribute to the future development of Sichuan and China.
