August 25, 2017 -- A total of 92 freshmen of Tsinghua University have got student loans through a college green channel by August 25, 2017.

In the past 20 years, Tsinghua has helped 5,380 students finish their university study with a loan of 33.8 million yuan.

The Green Channel was initiated in 1998 for the students from flood-affected families across China. Tsinghua took the lead in launching the channel to relieve students’ financial burdens, making sure all the hard-working and talented students from poor families can continue their college study.

In 2008, the Wenchuan earthquake occurred. Tsinghua University set a special green channel to ease the financial burden of students from disaster areas.
