Chan Ho Family Scholarships, The

On the Donor

In 2002, The Chan Ho Family Scholarship was established at HKU to support graduates of Chong Gene Hang College who have strong academic potential but have limited financial resources.

The Donor, who wished to remain anonymous, was inspired by Mr & Mrs Chong Gene Hang (張振興伉儷), the founders of his alma mater, the Chong Gene Hang College. 

The Chong’s couple spent their lives working hard on laundry business outside of Hong Kong. It was Mrs Chong’s last wish to devote their life savings to establish a secondary school where future generations would be given an education, which the couple themselves had not been privileged to receive.

Their act motivated their school graduates who hoped to support younger schoolmates to pursue tertiary education. The Scholarship was also dedicated to the Donor’s beloved parents.
