The Kwan Care and Love Scholarship has two significant outcomes:
The Kwan family first became interested in contributing to SCU after learning of the university's aim to promote Traditional Chinese Medicine education in the United States.

Mrs. Kwan, a successful real estate professional, has a growing interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine. They both strongly believe in giving back and awarding academic excellence.
