The W. Wing Yip & Brothers Bursaries 2007 accepts application from mid-July, 2007. More than 150 awards have been granted since the launch of the Bursaries in 2000.

These bursaries were set up by the W. Wing Yip and Brothers Charitable Trust, aiming to encourage Chinese in or coming to the U.K to pursue university education by providing assistance to students who encounter financial difficulties to carry on their studies.

For the purpose of serving the community in the long term, the founders of the bursaries, Mr. W Wing Yip and his brothers, Mr. Sammy Yap and Mr. Lee Sing Yap are handing over the responsibility to the next generation. Mr. Henry Yap, Mr. Albert Yip and Mr. Brian Yip, directors of Wing Yip Group will carry on their duty this year.

Candidates must be of Chinese origin (one of the parents to be of Chinese origin), regardless of age, sex and place of original, be of good character, and must have academic achievements in school. References from two persons will be required, at least one of whom must have known the candidate as a student. Knowledge of the Chinese language will be an advantage.

In the application made by the candidate, the candidate should make a brief statement (about 300 words) of his financial circumstances from which the need for financial assistance is arise. Due consideration will be given to such circumstances in the award of bursaries.

The decision on the dispensation of bursaries, full or partial, will be the sole responsibility of the Selection Board and their decision is final.

The total amount of the 2007 awards is 36,000 and will be awarded to 30 students each of whom will receive 1,200.

The deadline for applications is 31 October 2007. The results will be announced by the end of 2007. Notification of award will be sent to each successful candidate by The Board. The awards will also be announced through the Chinese media and at the websites:
