Summary

CWEF High School Scholarships educate and equip students from low-income families in rural China. We work with schools to sponsor students who are well-qualified (good character and grades) and vulnerable (low-income, female, handicapped, minority, etc). Beyond financial support, CWEF staff and volunteers invest in these young women and equip them for life after school through enrichment activities such as the REACH resiliency building program, career workshops and summer camps.

Challenge

In China, public education beyond Grade 9 is not guaranteed. Students must pass entrance exams to access high school, and families must pay the tuition and fees. Across rural China, there are many well-qualified students from low-income and difficult family circumstances who struggle to afford the tuition and fees needed to stay in school, giving them the chance to graduate from high school and to continue on to higher education and meaningful careers.

Solution

CWEF's need-based scholarships make it possible for young women from difficult family circumstances to complete high school, positioning them for bright futures. In addition, student development programs prepare students for life after school. Examples of such enrichment programs include Career Workshops, Summer Camps and REACH, which trains teachers to better support the social-emotional growth of their students.

Long-Term Impact

We believe these educated and equipped young women will go on to do great things in the future. In fact, a large group of previous CWEF High School Scholarship program graduates are doing just that in China's Guangdong province with the recent launch of Shining Star, a domestic non-profit organization that is training university students to serve vulnerable 'left-behind' children in rural areas.
