The Hwa Chong Junior College (HCJC) Alumni Undergraduate Scholarship was launched on 12 December at the 2011 HCI Senior Promenade.
Initiated by the HCJC Alumni, this scholarship provides financial assistance to Hwa Chongians who have gained admission to undergraduate programmes at Nanyang Technological University, National University of Singapore, or Singapore Management University.
Hwa Chong alumnus, Mr William Ng, mooted the idea. He realised that many deserving Hwa Chong students required scholarships in order to further their studies. Mr Ng has generously donated $200,000 as the initial seed money for the scholarship. He has also stepped forward to lead fund-raising events for the scholarship in its initial years.
This scholarship is offered to Hwa Chongians with exceptional academic results, outstanding leadership qualities, and Co-Curricular Activities achievements. It sponsors the minimum duration of the first degree, and an additional year if the holder qualifies for an Honours degree course, subject to sustained academic performance and satisfactory conduct in the university.
