The Lee Shau Kee Foundation Donates HK$7.2 Million to the University of Hong Kong for Establishing the “HKU Lee Shau Kee Top Athletes Scholarship”

To support our young athletes’ pursuits of both sports and academic excellence, the Lee Shau Kee Foundation has made a generous donation of HK$7.2 million to The University of Hong Kong (HKU) for the establishment of the “HKU Lee Shau Kee Top Athletes Scholarship”, which will award HK$400,000 each to six of the outstanding athletes admitted to HKU through the “Top Athletes Direct Admission Scheme” every year over three years.

Coleman Wong (tennis), Lawrence Ng (fencing), Nicholas Choi (fencing), Sandy Choi (sailing), Russell Williams Aylsworth (sailing) and Adrian Yung (Alpine skiing) are this year’s awardees, and they will begin their studies at HKU in the academic year 2022/23.

Dr. Martin Lee, Chairman of Henderson Land Group, said: “My heartfelt congratulations to these six athlete awardees, who have achieved remarkable success in their own fields and have a bright, limitless future ahead of them. Through the ‘HKU Lee Shau Kee Top Athletes Scholarship’, I hope to do my part to support our top sporting talent and motivate them to pursue their dreams and maintain a good balance between sports and academics. May the athletes continue to work hard and take their achievements to the next level! It is my hope that the business sector and the broader society will go a step further in supporting our local athletes so that they will get to shine on the international sporting stage and bring home more glory.”
