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.
