About the Pan-Asia Alumni Reunion

Pan-Asia is an annual event open to all U-M alumni, family, and friends. Guests generally attend to connect with each other, renew friendships, and reignite the Michigan spirit while learning how to engage more deeply with U-M. Started by a small group of alumni in Singapore who simply wanted to remain connected to each other, the gathering has turned into a major U-M event that celebrates our alumni and donors in the region.

Previous events have been held in Singapore (2010 and 2015), Shanghai (2011 and 2017), Seoul (2012 and 2018), Taipei (2013), Hong Kong (2014 and 2019), and Tokyo (2016).

U-M Pan-Asia Alumni Scholarship

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, this scholarship unites the Michigan 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, over $250,000 has been raised from more than 500 gifts and pledges.
