A.CE Award


One of CCLF’s initiatives is to institute a scholarship at each participating university to be awarded to a Chinese-Canadian student. This goal of this scholarship is to provide a student the financial assistance required to help him/her focus more on learning valuable skills than to worry about the costs of attending university. Equally as important, the founders of CCLF are looking award this scholarship to a student who has a similar ideology and character as themselves – someone who is not only looking to advance their own careers, but who is looking to advance the careers of their peers and the greater Chinese-Canadian community.
