HKBU receives donation from Mr. Wong Nga Chung to set up scholarship for Social Sciences students
The University recently received a generous donation of HK$500,000 from Mr. Wong Nga Chung, President of Nakagawa Electronics Limited, designated for the establishment of the “Wong Li Yuk Ying Exchange Scholarship for SOSC Students”.
Starting from the academic year of 2022/23, the scholarship will provide awards to one to four outstanding full-time UGC-funded Social Sciences students with financial needs, enabling them to gain exchange experience at non-local institutions and to immerse in other cultures and broaden horizons during their studies at HKBU.
In recognition of Mr. Wong’s generosity, a Thanksgiving Ceremony officiated by Mr. Wong and HKBU representatives was held by the Faculty of Social Sciences on 23 February 2021. They included Professor Daniel Lai and Professor Chung Pak Kwong, Dean and Associate Dean (Development) of Social Sciences, and Mrs. Lily Chan, Director of University Advancement and Secretary-General of the HKBU Foundation.
Mr. Wong is Honorary Permanent President and Member of the Alumni Committee of the HKBU Foundation, as well as Honorary University Fellow of HKBU. He has been a long-standing supporter of his alma mater, always giving generously in support of the University’s various endeavours.
