2018 Cohort of Ma Scholars Announced

The Rackham Graduate School is pleased to announce the second cohort of Ma Scholars. This need-based funding is awarded to graduate students from Asia who wish to pursue careers in public service, particularly those in the Schools of Social Work, Education, and Nursing. With the addition of these three students, six students have benefitted thus far from the generosity shown by Karl Ma through his gift of $2.5 million to establish the Karl C.K. Ma Endowed Graduate Scholarship Fund at Rackham.

We would like to extend our congratulations to the following awardees:

Diversity, Water, and the Future of Work: A Conversation with Earl Lewis

Former U-M Vice Provost and Dean of the Rackham Graduate School Earl Lewis is returning to the University of Michigan as the director of the soon-to-be-established Center for Social Solutions. Lewis spent 15 years at U-M as a faculty member before becoming provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at Emory University and then, in 2013, president of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. We talked to him about his pending return and the value of a project like this on our campus.

Karl C.K. Ma Makes $2.5 Million Gift to the Rackham Graduate School

Gift Will Support Graduate Students from Asia in Public Service Fields

Ann Arbor, MI | September 12, 2017

Karl C.K. Ma has made a gift to the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies in the amount of $2.5 million. Of that sum, $2 million will be used to establish the Karl C.K. Ma Endowed Graduate Scholarship Fund, and the remaining $500,000 will be used to establish an expendable fund. The purpose of Ma’s gift is to provide need-based support to graduate students from Asia who wish to pursue careers in public service, particularly those in the Schools of Social Work, Education, and Nursing. Ma also hopes his gift will support students whose research or primary scholarly focus is on the study and preservation of Asian cultures, including Asian regional studies, music, art, language, and literature.
