Betty Jamie Chung Memorial Scholarship
鍾郁君紀念獎學金

On the Donor

In 2016, the University received a pledged bequest  of HK$1.8 million from the late Ms Betty Jamie Chung Yu-Juen (BA 1965, MA 1968) for the establishment of the "Betty Jamie Chung Memorial Scholarship" as a legacy to benefit future generations.
 
Ms Chung received her bachelor's and master's degrees at HKU. Keen on marketing research, Ms Chung had over two decades of related working experience in academic, social and business organisations in Hong Kong, the US, and Singapore. In 1982, she established a market research consultant firm in Taiwan and later, she completed a doctorate degree in Social Psychology in Canada.
 
Raised in a learned family, Ms Chung valued education and it is hoped that the Scholarship can encourage financially challenged students studying Philosophy, Psychology or Chinese Medicine in their pursuit of an all-round education. It is further hoped that the scholarship can support students in their participation in enrichment activities such as study tours, exchange or cultural immersion programmes, internships and service learning.
