Each year scholarships are awarded to 449 students which help support their education from early learning stages through to graduation.

The late Roy E Heinecke spent many years serving the US Embassy in the Asia-Pacific region.

Being exposed to the cultures and living in these countries inspired him to provide deserving youngsters the advantage of more education.
