Lee Shau Kee Scholarships

On the Donor

In 2007, Dr Lee Shau Kee, Chairman of the Lee Shau Kee Foundation (李兆基基金) and a dedicated philanthropist, generously donated the sum of HK$500 million to The University of Hong Kong in support of its institutional advancement, which half of this gift (HK$250 million) is endowed for student scholarships, and the remainder (HK$250 million) towards campus development. Only the annual investment income generated from the endowment will be used to award the scholarships.

Dr Lee believes in the importance of nurturing great talents and recognised it as a long-term investment which are often imposing and monumental. The result, however, is immensely rewarding as the society benefits from the knowledge and expertise that these leaders acquire during their school years.
