The CNOOC College Student Fund was set up in July 2003 with RMB10 million yuan, or about US$1.3 million, donated by China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC). The first phase of the project concluded in 2007. In June 2007, CNOOC again donated RMB15 million yuan, or about US$2 million, to China Soong Ching Ling Foundation for the second phase of the project. The project provides assistance to students with financial difficulties in 36 key colleges and universities, and organizes the recipients to conduct research on Soong Ching Ling and carry out activities such as social services, in an effort to nurture healthy personalities and positive mentalities for the students.
