History
The China Center Scholarship was created in 2004 by generous donations in honor of the China Center's 25th anniversary. The scholarship fund continues to be supported by individual and corporate donors to the China Center. This scholarship is often referred to as the "red pockets" scholarship in recognition of annual gifts made during the Chinese New Year holiday. In Chinese traditional culture, monetary gifts are put inside a red envelope (or "pocket" in Chinese) and given during holidays or special occasions.
