Seven Students Received Sir Edward Youde Memorial Scholarships

June 2018

Seven undergraduate and graduate students of the Chinese University are honoured with the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowships, Scholarships, and Scholarships for Disabled Students 2017–18, making CUHK the local institution with the highest number of recipients this year.

Wong Chun (photo), one of the awardees of Sir Edward Youde Memorial Scholarships and a Year 1 medical student, had a great concern for youth suicides in Hong Kong. He aspires to be a neuropsychiatrist to help teenagers with mental problems.

The Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fund was set up in 1987 to commemorate the late Governor, Sir Edward Youde, for his distinguished contributions. Since its establishment, CUHK students have received altogether 851 awards.
