With deep respect and sorrow, many Lingnanians and I attended the funeral service of our former President, Professor Chan Yuk-Shee, on 3 June 2017.
We are forever grateful for the invaluable contribution of President Chan to Lingnan University, the Hong Kong’s higher education sector and the community. We are proud of the University’s achievements under his six-year leadership, including the full student residency accomplished in 2013, enhanced student exchange opportunities and a smooth transition to the new 3-3-4 academic system.
Some Lingnanians have initiated and made donations to set up a scholarship scheme in the name of President Chan in honour and memory of his great contribution to Lingnan University. The Scholarship scheme will be named as President Chan Yuk-Shee Scholarships to award undergraduate students who achieve outstanding academic performance. President Chan’s family has decided to make a donation to support the Scholarship scheme.
If you would like to contribute to the Scholarship scheme, you are welcome to complete the enclosed form and return it to the Office of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Affairs.
Should you have enquiries, please contact our colleague Ms Jane Tam at 2616 8944.
