The Y. P. Heung Foundation Post-Secondary Awards

In Fall 2019, we launched the Y. P. Heung Foundation Post-Secondary Awards. These awards seek to encourage and support students entering full-time programs in nine post-secondary institutions in the Lower Mainland. As tuition fees rise and general affordability becomes an increasing challenge in major urban centers, we recognize the need to give students a leg up. By helping students close the gap of inequality, we hope to enhance the economic performance of the overall community.

We have committed to provide a total of ninety awards per year for five years to the following institutions:

  • The University of British Columbia
  • Simon Fraser University
  • Langara College
  • Douglas College
  • Kwantlen Polytechnic University
  • Emily Carr University of Art + Design
  • Vancouver Community College
  • British Columbia Institute of Technology
  • Capilano University
  • University of Ottawa
