Cheung Scholarship to Provide Study Abroad to China

Starting next year, students will have the opportunity to receive funding to participate in an internship in China thanks to a generous donation to the Truman State University Foundation.

Chi Cheung of Jefferson City, Mo., recently pledged to donate up to $10,000 annually to provide talented and deserving students the opportunity to participate in CHN 550(G), the Truman EFL Internship in China. Truman students who participate in this internship teach English at Shuizhai High School and Da Jin Village Elementary School. Interns also serve as authorities on American culture and interact with English faculty at these schools to improve their listening and speaking skills. Students receive 12 credit hours for CHN 550(G).  

Students can receive up to $2,500 to participate in the program. To be eligible, students must be accepted as an intern for the Truman EFL Internship in China and must have a financial need.
