George WH Lan & Yi-Chen Lan
This Scholarship has been founded by the son of George WH Lan and graduate of the University, Professor Yi-Chen Lan. The Scholarship is in memory of Mr Lan and recognises his commitment to education.
George WH Lan was the owner and CEO of a multinational electronic manufacturing corporation, with its headquarters based in Taiwan. During the 1990's, Mr Lan's business operations spanned three continents and employed over 3,000 staff worldwide. The education of his children was Mr Lan's first priority, so much so that he sponsored his son, Yi-Chen, to complete university in Australia.
Yi-Chen started his undergraduate program in the Faculty of Commerce in 1994 as an international student and went on to complete his Bachelor Honours in 1998 and a PhD in 2004.
As a popular study destination for many local students from low socio-economic backgrounds, the vision of the University inspired Yi-Chen to provide a scholarship to enrich the student learning journey; to provide support to talented students; and to encourage them in their studies, dreams and aspirations.
