Y.P. Heung Foundation Post-Secondary Scholarship

The Y.P. Heung Foundation is a charitable organization based in Vancouver, whose mission is to positively impact British Columbia by providing grants in the areas of Arts + Culture, Education, and Health. Within these areas, they are particularly proud to support programs that benefit youth in our community.

With rising post-secondary tuition fees and the general challenge of affordability in all major urban centers in the province, academic awards such as the Y.P Heung Foundation Award, will encourage and support new entrants in post-secondary institutions; this will better help students close the gap of inequality in the future, thus enhancing the economic performance of the overall community.

“…..providing better education for all could reduce inequality and increase economic performance.”

Joseph E. Stiglitz, “People, Power & Profits: Progressive Capitalism for an Age of Discontent,” 2019.  (Winner of Nobel Prize in Economics) 

“…. preparing people to succeed in a digital-age economy does not require abandonment of a traditional liberal arts education. In fact, given the ever-growing importance of critical thinking, creativity, and the ability to communicate with a much more diverse range of people over the course of a working life, an education that includes history, philosophy, literature, art, and music as well as math, science, and digital skills will be more important than ever.

Ian Bremmer, “Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism,” 2018.  (Founder, Eurasia Group)
