Host Institution:

The Henry Luce Foundation was established in 1936 by Henry R. Luce, the co-founder, and editor-in-chief of Time Inc., to honor his parents who were missionary educators in China. The Foundation builds upon the vision and values of four generations of the Luce family: broadening knowledge and encouraging the highest standards of service and leadership.
