What is Goodwill Sponsor program?
Goodwill Sponsor program is organized by USTCAF to support USTC students in financial difficulty. Each student will have his/her own Goodwill Sponsor. A sponsor can support one or multiple students at the same time. A sponsor can be a person or a class fund or any other funds. Each sponsor will have his/her own Goodwill subfund. Your donations and award transactions are all published online at USTCAF website for public review.
How much do I need to donate?
With higher RMB/US$ exchange rate and climbing living expense in China, a sponsor needs to donate 4500 RMB (or $710 with current exchange rate) every year to support one student. You need to support entire four years in USTC. So the total is about $2840. You don't need to donate all the money at one time. Some companies have donation match program. That helps too. Please check with your HR policy.
