Why Giving

The Joint Institute has been established for 10 years. Her brilliant achievements and bright future are only possible with the support of our friends, alumni, parents, businesses, and non-profit institutions.

  • Groundbreaking mission

Since ten years ago as the pioneer in China's higher education reform, JI has been leading the Chinese higher education toward international high quality education. JI is the first Chinese institution to receive the "Heiskell Award" for innovation in international education,  one of the highest honors in international higher education.

Support JI. Let's witness JI's exciting development in the next decade.

  • Pursuit of excellence

JI is committed to exploring innovative approaches to higher education reform, bringing the world's best education to China's best students. JI is student-centered in building a first-class international research Institute for nurturing innovative global leaders on China's soil.


Support JI. Let's pursue excellence together.

  • Tuition dilemma

To pursue excellence, JI needs to continue investing capital, attracting global high-level faculty, strengthening infrastructure, improving education conditions and resources. Fixed tuition income can not cover or support the much needed and increasingly growing teaching and research resources of a sustainable development;  some students need financial assistance to complete their studies.

Support JI, so that more needy best students have equal access to the best educational resources. Help with JI's long-term healthy development

  • We are grateful for each donation.

We cherish every donation. We thank all alumni and friends for your support of JI.
