Nationwide, a total of 192 New Great Wall high school self-reliance classes were established in 173 schools from 143 counties in 20 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities), benefitting 27,700 person-times.

The New Great Wall Scholarship Program for undergraduate students for impoverished undergraduate students provides financial support and talent support. The program aims to cultivate self-reliant talents, and guide students to pay back the society while striving to become a talented person.

Since the launch of the program in 2002, it has raised a total of RMB 286 million with 134,943 person-times of beneficiaries, covering more than 600 colleges and universities in 31 provinces (municipalities and autonomous regions). New Great Wall Self-Reliance Clubs have been established in 104 colleges and universities to provide students with a platform where they can achieve personal development.

In 2018, the program raised funds of RMB 14.3308 million and input RMB 12.74 million. A total of 4,639 qualified students from 186 colleges and universities received scholarships.

In 2018, the program carried out three program monitorings, two college and university meetings. Program monitoring helps ensure that the program is carried out accurately and effectively; college and university meetings aim to understand the needs of college students, discuss the direction and new modes for program development, and serve as an effective way for donors and beneficiary students to connect with each other. Face to face communication helped narrow the distance between the donors and beneficiary students, and strengthen the relationship between them.
