The Mayling Soong Fund supports diverse initiatives that enrich understanding of Asian cultures and societies (broadly defined) on the Wellesley campus.

A portion of its annual expendable budget is used to support activities on the Wellesley campus that further educate the community about aspects of East Asian, Southeast Asian, South Asian or Asian American culture. The Fund also provides small scholarships to a limited number of students for summer language study in China, Japan, Korea and India. Additional support for China scholarships is provided by the Helen Lin Fund.
