HKBU receives donation from Mrs. Shum Lam Kam Chu to set up two scholarships

19 May 2022

The University recently received a generous donation of HK$600,000 from Mrs. Shum Lam Kam Chu to set up two endowment funds of HK$300,000 each in support of the establishment of the “Shum Lam Kam Chu Chinese Medicine Scholarship” and the “Shum Lam Kam Chu Sport, Physical Education and Health Scholarship”. The former will be awarded to undergraduate students of the School of Chinese Medicine and the latter will be awarded to those studying Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Physical Education & Recreation Management in the Department of Sport, Physical Education and Health.

Starting from the academic year 2022-2023, each scholarship will be awarded to a Year 2 or above student with outstanding academic performance in an eligible course of study. Each scholarship recipient will receive a grant of HK$12,000.

Following her family's earlier donation to establish a scholarship at HKBU, Mrs. Shum made another donation in the hope of rewarding and encouraging deserving students to concentrate on their studies, strive for academic excellence, and ultimately, give back to the community.
