Kuan Family Scholarship

On the Donor

In 2015-16, Mr William Kuan kindly donated a sum to set up a scholarship for students at The University of Hong Kong. Mr Kuan is a Malaysian working in Hong Kong. Having benefited from the support from a relative when he was pursuing his undergraduate degree in Australia, he felt that he should give back to the society by lending support to the younger generation. The first scholarship awards were made in the academic year 2015-16.
