Ying ZHONG, Yanqiang CUI


With the institutionalism theory as the breakthrough point, this paper analyses the composition and functional characteristics of the CPC’s higher education fund guarantee system in Yan’an period. According to the document analysis and historical data investigation, it is thought in this paper that the CPC’s higher education fund guarantee system in Yan’an period was actually composed of the subsystems of the following three levels: government subsidy system, school production system and social contribution system. Thought they had different significance, they all had the functions of helping to realize the higher education for the people in Yan’an, strengthening the relation between the government and the colleges, weakening the individualism and strengthening the collectivism, which provided sufficient talents for the ultimate victory of the CPC’s revolution.
