HKANC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Application Opens: January 1, 2022 | Deadline: EXTENDED until July 1, 2022
ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION
In 2001, The Hong Kong Association of Northern California (HKANC) initiated a Scholarship fund designed to provide scholarships to undergraduate university students of high academic distinction. This is based on the belief that investing in today’s youth will help to ensure that students strive to achieve their goals and develop into leaders of tomorrow.
Since the inception of the program, we have provided more than $410,000 to the community colleges and universities located in Northern California for deserving students. In 2021, more than 150 participants and community partners had graciously supported the fundraising golf tournament and donated to the scholarship foundation. Five students have been awarded $3,000 each for their outstanding community involvement and academic achievement with financial needs.
The HKANC believes scholarships are a core investment for the future, providing the opportunity of a lifetime to talented young scholars, many of whom will make vital contributions to our society later in life.
The HKANC Scholarship Foundation established in 2017 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (TIN: 82-1256009). Your tax-deductible contribution qualifies as a charitable donation under Federal and California state tax laws.
