The Cynthia H. Kuo scholarship fund was established in loving memory of Cynthia by her husband, Dale Chen and best friend, Elisa Yu. Cynthia was always passionate about caring for people. She especially liked being part of a big Christian family, and helping people in need from time to time. Before her passing, she organized a Christian fellowship program to support young overseas Chinese students studying in the Bay Area seeking to worship God in the local Christian community. In order to honor Cynthia and fulfill her wishes, her friends and family established this scholarship for Chinese students actively involved in the Christian faith and/or Christian youth groups in June 2012.
