Office of International Programs
Established in 2017 with a generous gift by the Victor and William Fung Foundation, the Fung Scholars program at Boston College provides opportunities to support international experiences in Asia. In line with the Office of International Programs’ mission, the program is designed to expand BC students’ access to study, intern, volunteer, and academic research opportunities in Asia, as well as to help students develop as well-rounded, intercultural-competent, and globally conscious citizens.
Semester, year, or summer grants are awarded to BC undergraduates to cover tuition, fees, living expenses, and cost of travel to approved programs in Asia. Selection is based on academic excellence and leadership qualities and potential. Preference is given to candidates who focus on language study.
BC students join the global community of Fung Scholars from distinguished institutions in Asia, Europe, and the U.S., including Harvard, MIT, Princeton, and Northeastern, to contribute to the legacy of distinguished leadership and public service established by the Fung family.
Details about the application process will be available in September 2017.
