On the Donor

In 2010, Dr Patrick S C Poon kindly pledged to The University of Hong Kong for the establishment of ten scholarships, which were equally divided between different admission streams in the BSc(ActuarSc) programme, in support of outstanding students to pursue Actuarial Science studies at HKU. Upon the phasing out of the Early Admission Scheme and the 3-year curriculum, the scholarship scheme will continue to make five scholarships available for the 4-year curriculum annually.
