Hui Pun Hing Scholarships for Postgraduate Research

In 1990, Dr Hui Wai Haan (BA 1932, MSc 1954, LLD 1981), Senior Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Hong Kong until her retirement in 1973, established the “Hui Pun Hing Endowment Fund” in memory of his late father Mr Hui Pun Hing. The Endowment fund awards postgraduate scholarships in sciences (including medicine) and provides support for the Department of Chemistry and the University Libraries. The Hui Wai Haan Chair of Chemistry was also established in the same year.
