Chinese Post-Secondary Education Scholarship
About the Annual Chinese Scholarship
The Centre for Community Based Research established the Chinese Post-Secondary Education Scholarship in 2012. The scholarship is made possible through the donations of the Waterloo Chinese Business Association (WCBA). The fund contributes to the education costs of local students of Chinese heritage entering into university.
Awards will be given to at four students this year. Awards will be $1,000 for first prize (one recipient), $800 for second prize (one recipients), and $600 for third prize (two recipients).
