Anita Fong Memorial Scholarship

Anita Wing Suen Fong was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to San Francisco in 1959 with her parents and older brother. She attended Jean Parker Elementary School, Herbert Hoover Jr. High School, and Lowell High School before attending UC Berkeley where she received her BA in Sociology. Upon graduation, she continued her education at Sacramento State University where she received her Master in Sociology, and her MBA from Golden Gate University a few years later.

Anita Fong was a fierce advocate and mentor for Asian Pacific Islander women. This scholarship honors her achievements and dedication to helping others. It is to be awarded to a female high school senior who expresses interest in a healthcare industry and demonstrates Anita’s spirit of community service. The Anita Fong Memorial Scholarship is managed by the Rotary Club of San Francisco Chinatown and its President Richard Swart and Past President Vanita Louie.

Vincent Fong Impossible Dream Scholarship

Vincent Fong is Anita Fong’s older brother, who emigrated from Hong Kong when he was 10 years old, along with his parents and Anita. He attended UC Berkeley where he earned his Bachelor in Engineering, an MBA, and a law degree (JD). After such a diverse education, Vince decided the best way to find some synergy in his education and personal interest in optimization and minimization (operations research) would be in the field of taxation.

Inspired by his sister’s giving spirit, Vincent has established the Vincent Fong Impossible Dream Scholarship to encourage young people to broaden their opportunities and erase financial barriers that prevent them from achieving their academic dreams.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Current CYC youth participant & High School Senior
  • Residency: San Francisco
