Manhattan Mandarin Scholarship Foundation

Mandarin for all

The Manhattan Mandarin Scholarship Foundation (MMSF), established in 2019, offers the opportunity to learn Mandarin to both underprivileged children in New York City and to those students who may not have immediate access to learning the language. The team behind MMSF strongly believes the opportunity to learn Mandarin should be afforded to all children. Moreover, empowering disadvantaged children with the ability to speak Mandarin not only opens their minds to a new world and culture, but provides the unique power to open new doors in their lives. MMSF’s fully subsidized programs pair students, or groups of students, with Manhattan Mandarin’s skillful teachers who are highly experienced in working with children within their specific needs, and who regularly work hand-in-hand with some of the city’s top private schools.

 

The MMSF program sponsors children in the New York area in achieving conversational fluency and developing skills in character reading and writing, as well as familiarizing them with the Chinese culture.  MMSF is affording the opportunity to learn Mandarin to any student who has the drive and passion to pursue this challenging but advantageous language.
