The Mon Sheong Golden Jubilee Scholarship was created to commemorate the Foundation’s 50th anniversary. It is presented annually to students who demonstrate well-rounded excellence and desire to make real change—whether in their communities or around the world.

Our Awards Committee, a panel of current and former professors, evaluates and considers applicants based on their academic standing, voluntary community involvement, leadership, character, and aspirations to make a difference. We are proud to support such exemplary students by empowering them to reach their full potential.

The recipients of the Mon Sheong Golden Jubilee Scholarship 2019 have been chosen. Congratulations to Michal Moshkovich and Alan Tam!

Thank you to our panel of expert judges, Dr. Barbara Liu, Professor Brad Klump and Dr. Jack Leong, for their expertise.

Our Golden Jubilee Scholarship is back again this year! Applications will start in March and end in July. More details coming soon!
