Helen Gee Chin Scholarship Foundation

The Helen Gee Chin Scholarship Foundation was founded on March 7, 2011, to honor the memory of Helen Gee Chin, wife of Sifu Chin of Calvin Chin's Martial Arts Academy, Inc. Simo was the administrator at CCMAA for 15 years and was involved with preserving the history and promoting the practice of traditional Chinese martial arts. She was beloved by her husband, the students of the Academy that she ran with him, and by the martial arts community as a whole. The Foundation is offering college scholarships to encourage academic achievement and motivate individuals to become serious students of the Chinese martial arts. The scholarship is open to students who plan to enroll full-time as an undergraduate at an accredited U.S. four-year college or university and meet the minimum eligibility requirements: U.S. citizenship, five or more years of study in Chinese Martial Arts (Kung Fu, Wu Shu, or Tai Chi), and a "B" average grade or better. Scholarship recipients are selected based on criteria such as martial arts study and achievement, academic achievement, a written essay, and participation and leadership in community and school activities.
