The Greater China Scholars Program, one of the University’s largest scholarship programs for international students, provides undergraduate scholarship funding and programmatic support for a select group of students from the Greater China region .

During the 7th Annual Greater China Scholars Weekend, scholarship finalists, representing the top three percent of applicants from the Greater China region, are interviewed by a selection committee comprised of Notre Dame parents, alumni, faculty, and administrators. These program finalists demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, a strong commitment to the betterment of society, and a promising capacity for global leadership.  

The Weekend concludes with a Celebration Dinner that brings together the Notre Dame community of parents, alumni, students, and friends to celebrate their support of Notre Dame’s educational mission and the Greater China Scholars program. Dr. Michael Pippenger, Vice President and Associate Provost for Internationalization, will deliver the Keynote Address at the Greater China Scholars Weekend’s Celebration Dinner.

The Greater China Scholars Program is made possible through the generous support of parents and alumni, in addition to the Li Ka Shing Foundation and the HS Chau Foundation, which provide full scholarships for the Program on an annual basis.
