Chen Hip-Hung Scholarships, Mr and Mrs

On the Donor

In line with the wishes of his mother's grandfather, Mr Poon Yan-Chuen (潘寅存先生), one of the founders and members of the Fund Raising Committee of the University of Hong Kong in 1909 and his grandfather, Mr Chen Shum-Loong (陳心農先生), who donated a series of Chinese classical books to the University currently housed at the Fung Ping Shan Library, and in memory of his mother, Mrs Chen Hip-Hung (陳叶熊夫人), Mr Chen Shao-Chi (陳紹箕先生) offered to donate a sum per annum with effect from 1983-84 for the establishment of a scholarship and a bursary. 

The value of the awards had been revised over the years, and on the occasion of the Mr Chen Shao-Chi's seventieth birthday in 1992, Mr Chen's family offered to increase the donation per annum with effect from 2002-03 until further notice for the award of scholarships and bursaries to benefit qualifying students of medicine and engineering respectively.

The scholarship is named as "Mr and Mrs Chen Hip-Hung Scholarships 陳叶熊先生夫人獎學金" and the bursary as "Mr and Mrs Chen Shao-Chi Bursaries 陳紹箕先生夫人助學金".
