Luo Zhongli, president of Sichuan Fine Arts Institute (SFAI), donated his one-million-yuan ‘China Arts Award’ to the Luo Zhongli Art Education Foundation of SFAI.
The non-public foundation was initiated with a fund of RMB 3 million yuan, including the 2 million yuan donated by schoolfellows of SFAI and the 1 million yuan from Luo Zhongli.
It is designed to fund students who achieve outstanding performance or who are from poor families, and teachers as an incentive to attend international academic conferences and apply for exchange activities in foreign countries. It will also act as a sponsor to introduce famous scholars to give lectures at SFAI; provide financial aid to art teaching research, science and technological research projects and monograph publications as well as boosting education and training.
