HONOLULU — The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Center for Chinese Studies recently announced the latest awards presented to graduate students and faculty members of the university from the Chung Fong and Grace Ning/ Confucius Institute Fund for Chinese Studies. The fund benefits graduate students and faculty members with China-focused academic projects by providing support for conference or research travel; purchase of books, materials, or supplies; and hiring student assistance.

The latest award winners include:

The Chung-Fong and Grace Ning Fund is named for the parents of UH Mānoa Center for Chinese Studies Associate Director Cynthia Ning. Chung Fong and Grace, long-time Hawaiʻi residents originally from China, lived in Pakistan for 17 years before arriving in the United States. All four of their children received scholarships to pursue their education in the United States, and as a token of their appreciation, the Nings set aside a portion of their savings for an endowment at the University of Hawaiʻi to benefit the Chinese Studies program.
