Disabled students receive scholarships from APB Foundation

Three disabled students received bond-free scholarship from APB Foundation on Friday morning.

The recipients were third-year civil engineering undergraduate Mr Samuel Soh, 23; final-year bioengineering student Mr Winston Wong, 25; and national swimmer Ms Yip Pin Xiu, 21.

Into its ninth year, the scholarship offers $12,000 per year for tertiary education up to four years to recognise those with physical disabilities who have achieved academic excellence.

Said Ms Chia Yong Yong, president of the Society for the Physically Disabled: "They are deserving role models for other students, and their success goes to show that with some support and accommodation from the community, people with disabilities can reach their fullest potential."
