The Woon Foundation

Since graduating from Northumbria University, alumnus Wee Teng Woon and the Woon Brothers Foundation have supported Northumbria University generously in a number of ways, most recently with the creation of the Woon Gallery of Asian Art.

The Woon Foundation Art and Sculpture Prize

The Woon Foundation Art and Sculpture Prize was established in 2012 by Northumbria University alumnus and philanthropist Wee Teng Woon, who with his three brothers actively support student prizes, scholarships and educational opportunities. The prize offers an exceptional opportunity for students currently in the final year of their undergraduate study within the United Kingdom and was created to provide opportunities for young students to develop their art, offering direct links with industry through Northumbria’s partnership with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art. The first prize is a £20,000 fellowship with a 12-month studio space in the Woon Tai Jee Studio, with runner-up prizes of £9,000 and £6,000.
