Thank you for expressing your interest in the Longan Scholarship Foundation 2018/2019.

The Longan Scholarship Foundation

The Longan Scholarship Foundation is a registered charity (pending) that provides financial resources to empower young people to become leaders, excel in active civic engagement, leadership, community development, and pursue the completion of post-secondary education. The foundation began when former Citizenship Judge, Family Physician and Founding President, Dr. Benson Lau saw the need for awards that support education and engaged leaders. Thus, the Longan Scholarship was founded to recognize student leadership, civic engagement and encourage future leaders.

Description of the Scholarship
