Surrey students Zahur Ashrafuzzaman, Cecilia Kim and Hank Wu are all finalists for the 2019 Loran scholarship.

Three students who attend three separate secondary schools in the Surrey School District have been named finalists for a prestigious scholarship offered by the Loran Scholars Foundation.

Grade 12 students Jun (Hank) Wu from Fleetwood Park Secondary, Zahur Ashrafuzzaman from Queen Elizabeth Secondary, and Semiahmoo Secondary's Cecilia Kim are among a list of 88 shortlisted candidates selected from more than 5,000 applicants nationwide.

The students were chosen following regional interviews and now await national interviews that will winnow the list down to the final 34 winners. Loran Scholars are awarded up to $100,000 over four years of post-secondary education.

If not selected as a Loran Scholar, finalists such as Wu, Ashrafuzzaman and Kim are eligible for a $5,000 finalists award. National selections will be made in February.
