A new scholarship program to empower young women in rural China

Give2Asia is proud to work with the PepsiCo Foundation to honor the memory of Jeffrey Wang, the company’s former General Counsel for Greater China.

The Jeffrey Wang Young Women Leaders Scholarship Program, established by PepsiCo Foundation, will empower young women from underserved rural communities in China to pursue higher education and realize their full potential. The goal is to support at least 150 scholars over the next 5 years.

This new program was created in close partnership with the China Women’s Development Foundation (CWDF) and through a dialogue with Jeffrey Wang’s family. Supporting the next generation of strong, intelligent women through education is a fitting tribute to Jeffrey. As an avid learner, Jeffrey understood that a good education was a key pathway to success and was a staunch believer in creating educational opportunities to uplift others.

Jeffrey was also an active supporter and contributor for CWDF’s “Water Cellar for Mothers” program, an example of PepsiCo’s continuous efforts in advancing women’s leadership and gender equity.

If you are interested in donating to this effort, please contact Give2Asia for more information. Details of guidelines and eligibility criteria for intending applicants will be available at the CWDF website.
