$250K Awarded in Scholarships at the 8th Annual Joseph Chung Scholarship Award Ceremony

Thursday, January 30, 2020

The 8th Annual Joseph Chung Scholarship Ceremony awarded over 100 students on Saturday, January 25 with a $2,500 scholarship to pursue post-secondary education. A total of $250,000 was given to scholarship recipients across the province.

The Joseph Chung Scholarship Fund – co-founded by Primacorp Ventures’ Chairman, Dr. Peter Chung and his wife Dr. Stephanie Chung – was established in honour of their late son, Joseph, who died unexpectedly at the age of 32.  Joseph was on the autism spectrum and suffered from epilepsy.

 “It had been our wish for Joseph to receive proper education and become a Christian leader, but it seemed unlikely due to his conditions,” says Dr. Chung. “Now, we realize that our dream can be fulfilled through other bright minds.”

This year’s scholarship award recipients were chosen through proven demonstrations of hard work, dedication, and their growing commitment to give back to their communities.   

“It makes me extremely happy to know that these students are serving the communities they love, because of the support they have received from the Joseph Chung scholarship,” says Dr. Chung.

The Joseph Chung Scholarship Foundation has awarded over 500 students to date and continues to help students wishing to pursue post-secondary training.
