2014 – current: Drs. Kenneth and Cheryl Cheung Scholarship Programme
Having spent a number of years in Wagga Wagga we have realised that local students could benefit from increased exposure to the various educational programs available in capital cities. Students in regional and rural areas often miss the educational opportunities accessed by their counterparts in larger city areas.
The Drs. Kenneth and Cheryl Cheung Scholarship Foundation was set up to provide financial assistance to local high school students to attend study workshops, school-sanctioned educational activities, agricultural shows and performing arts workshops, etc. To receive this scholarship, local high school students require recommendations from their school teachers, and they are finally selected based on their achievement, by members of the community independent of the fund sponsors.
We provide financial support to these students to enable them to access capital cities to learn and experience – bridging the city-rural divide and providing regional and rural students added assistance for them to achieve a learning outcome that they deserve.
