The Chenfeng Huang Memorial Scholarship
Every year, the Institute for Co-operative Education staff walk in the Concordia Shuffle to raise funds for the Chenfeng Huang Memorial Scholarship.
This award was created in 2019 in memory of Chen, a former Associate Director of the Institute for Co-operative Education. Chen worked with students and staff across Concordia every day and we know many students benefitted from her generosity, kindness and dedication.
This scholarship recognizes an undergraduate student who exemplifies the character traits that Chen possessed: personal accountability, collaborative practices, intellectual inquisitiveness, and the ability to inspire others to contribute within the workplace and the Institute community. We continue to appreciate the immeasurable impact that Chen had on the Institute and the Concordia community, and we thank Chen’s family for their continued support and their friendship over the years and into to future.

This scholarship is one of many awards and scholarships that recognize the achievements of students at the Institute, and provides them with a little extra financial support that could make a big difference. In addition to our Institute awards, we often nominate our excellent students for external awards.
