The U-M Pan-Asia Alumni Scholarship provides important financial aid in support of outstanding undergraduate students from across Asia attending U-M. Established by our Hong Kong alumni in 2014 to honor the Pan-Asia Alumni Reunion, the Pan-Asia Alumni Scholarship unites the U-M family around Asia, deepens connections to U-M, and builds esprit de corps. Each year alumni and friends in Asia and around the globe contribute to the U-M Pan-Asia Alumni Scholarship in celebration of each other and future generations of students. To date, nearly $250,000 has been raised in gifts, pledges, and matching funds.
