HKBU receives donation from Mrs Lee Siu-lun to set up scholarship
08 Jul 2020
The University recently received a generous donation of HK$1 million from Mrs Lee Ser Siu-hung, wife of Mr Lee Siu-lun, in support of the establishment of the “Mr and Mrs Lee Siu Lun Scholarship”. In the five academic years starting from 2020/21, a scholarship of HK$50,000 will be awarded annually to four students who each demonstrate excellent conduct and academic performance. A total of 20 students will benefit from this scholarship.
On 7 July, Mrs Lee and her family members Mr Henry Lee and Mrs Teresa Lee, Dr Herbert Lee and Ms Violet Lee hosted a dinner for HKBU representatives including Professor Roland Chin, President, Mr Yeung Chee-kong, Associate Vice-President (Engagement) and Mrs Lily Chan, Director of University Advancement and Secretary-General of the HKBU Foundation. During the dinner, President Chin presented souvenirs to Mrs Lee in appreciation of the Lee family’s long-standing support and great care for the University.
The late Mr Lee Siu-lun was an Honorary University Fellow of HKBU and Honorary Permanent President of the HKBU Foundation. Mr Lee and his wife have been benevolent philanthropists who have made generous contributions towards the University’s various endeavours over the years, including the Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning, the School of Chinese Medicine and the Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology. They also provided financial assistance for HKBU students to engage in service tours on the Mainland. In recognition of their generosity, the Learning Commons on the sixth floor of the Fong Shu Chuen Library was named the “Mr and Mrs Lee Siu Lun Learning Commons” in 2016.
