WOU Chancellor’s Scholarship Fund Launch in conjunction with “Road to Dawn” preview

A financial support programme to help needy and deserving students to pursue further education implemented under an umbrella fund called the Chancellor’s Scholarship Fund was launched at the Golden Screen Cinemas, Gurney Plaza. 

WOU had the honour of having Energy, Water and Communications Minister Dato’ Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik, who is also WOU’s Council Chairman, to launch the scholarship fund. The programme aims to provide grants to financially strapped students who are determined and able to achieve academic excellence.
