Non-Government Sponsored


During this time, only very few Chinese Students came to U.S.A. due to politic conflicts at the end of 19th century. However, Lehigh University played a very important role in one of key industry in China – HanYeh Ping Inc. Lehigh’s documents indicated that before 1909, there were quite few Chinese students sponsored by the company as either special students (advanced degree). These groups of students were the first generation Iron and Steel engineers in China’s history.
