On Friday January 24, members of The University of Winnipeg Foundation staff greeted this year’s Wu Chung Scholar, Wanshan Liu, presenting her with a special gift celebrating the Chinese New Year.

Wanshan is in her first year of study at UWinnipeg, majoring in economics and finance. She says her plan is to become an accountant and will pursue her CPA designation when she completes her degree.

The Wu Chung Scholarship recognizes the academic achievements and leadership potential of outstanding students from Huadu, in the region of Guangzhou, China, and enables them to study at UWinnipeg. The scholarship covers tuition, books, housing, and travel home once a year until the student completes their degree. The scholarship was established through the generosity of Sir Gordon Wu, Chair of Hopewell Holdings.
