Lee Shau Kee Scholarships
李兆基獎學金

On the Donor

In 2007, Dr Lee Shau Kee, a dedicated philanthropist, generously donated the sum to The University of Hong Kong in support of its institutional advancement through the Lee Shau Kee Foundation (李兆基基金). Half of this gift is endowed for student scholarships, and the remainder is used for campus development.

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.
