Beijing Fellow enjoys some open space while traveling in Western China


For four weeks in 2018, from Giving Tuesday on November 27th to December 25th, the 21st Century Shansi Fellows Campaign seeks the support of our most recent cohort of alumni – the Shansi Fellows from 2000 to today.


We need the support of the Shansi community to expand into exciting new areas and to continue our new Hiroshima program and Independent Fellowship. Please help us to develop dynamic new programs for the next generation of Obies.




Four Shansi Trustees from the post-2000 cohort recognize this critical need, and they are leading the way by offering to match every gift made by a Shansi Fellow from 2000 onward up to a goal of $5,000! And if you’re a first-time donor to Shansi, they will double the match. Every gift helps us advance toward this ambitious goal.



The easiest way to give is online through PayPal. Click the link below and you can use a PayPal account or a credit card to support Shansi. We will receive confirmation of incoming donations and we will send you a letter of acknowledgement and thanks for your gift. To ensure we can send that acknowledgement, please check the box to share your mailing address with us.

If you prefer to send your contribution by mail, please click here for the Oberlin Shansi Printable Donation Form and send your check and the completed form to:

We also hope you might consider sharing your stories to help us tell the Shansi story to the next generation of Fellows. What was the best part of your Shansi Fellowship and how did it change your life? Submit a picture and story using this Google Form or email them to us at We may share it through the Shansi Instagram (find us at or @oberlinshansi) or in our outreach to students.


Follow us on Instagram and Facebook and you’ll see stories from Fellows today in China, India, Indonesia, and Japan. Help us make Shansi a social media destination for alumni and students interested in Asia.
