湘雅海外校友会雅礼协会奖学金
XYOAA-YCA Scholarship

 
1    背景:

        自从1914年建校起,近一百年,耶鲁雅礼协会一直都对湘雅的成立,成长及发展持续地提供帮助和支持。时光荏苒,始终如一。同时在过去的十年中,雅礼协会集资了100万美元资助湘雅医学院经济困难的学生。由于种种原因,最大的资金赞助人不能够继续帮助雅礼协会了,所以雅礼协会希望能与各位湘雅海外校友联手合作,得到我们的支持,共同帮助我们母校的学子。
 
2    目标:

         在百年校庆前筹集50万美元,作为今后十年中,以每年五万美元的资金来赞助学生。湘雅医学院,湘雅海外校友会,雅礼协会将组成联合委员会,由湘雅医学院提供候选学生的名单和资料,湘雅海外校友会和耶鲁雅礼协会的指导委员会进行严格和透明的甄选,共同选定受捐人。然后根据每个受捐人的具体情况给与三种不同的奖金:学费半奖,学费全奖,学费加生活费全奖。受捐人的受捐时间4年和8年不等。
 
       基金会的筹款,奖学金发放及运作都将遵循严格管理,开放透明,定期汇报的原则,保证我们海外校友捐的每一分钱都只会用在学生身上。雅礼协会承诺支付所有基金运作、管理、会议旅行等杂务费用。
