The Fung Scholars Program at Regis

Fung Scholars Header

The mission of The Fung Scholars Program at Regis is to support the international experiences of students seeking to learn in different cultures and environments. The program is funded by a generous donation in the name of Regis alumna Julia Fung '67 and provides scholarships for students from Hong Kong and Mainland China who wish to pursue their undergraduate education in the United States.

Students selected for this prestigious initiative have demonstrated academic excellence, a commitment to service, and a passion for leadership. As part of the program, students will be able to participate in one domestic or international service trip, funded by Regis.

The international Fung Scholars Program was established by the Victor and William Fung Foundation in 2006. To date, the program has supported the educational aspirations of more than 4,500 students.
