Both CH and CC Tung graduated from University of Liverpool
The Tung Foundation has launched the ‘Tung Liverpool Scholarship’ for Hong Kong and Chinese students studying at the University of Liverpool.
The Tung Foundation, founded by the late CY Tung, father of Liverpool graduates, CH Tung and CC Tung, supports social, cultural and educational causes.
The Tung Liverpool Scholarship is designed to provide an enhanced award for selected students from the Hong Kong Graduate Association Scholarship programme each year.
The Association supports undergraduate and postgraduate students studying on non-clinical taught programmes at Liverpool each year. Potential PhD candidates from Hong Kong and mainland China will also be given the opportunity to be selected for financial support from the Tung Liverpool Scholarship fund for their research activities at the University.
CC Tung said: “Hong Kong and China have many talented students who want to enhance their employability world-wide by gaining academic qualifications overseas. We are delighted to be able to support these ambitions through a scholarship programme at the University of Liverpool.
“My brother and I have fond memories of studying at Liverpool and we hope to continue this relationship with the University for the benefit of the next generation of scholars.”
The scholarship program will be announced by Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Sir Howard Newby, at an alumni event in Hong Kong. He said: “We are delighted to accept this gift from The Tung Foundation which will further strengthen our links to Hong Kong and China. It celebrates the longstanding connection between the University and the Tung family.
“We hope that their generosity will inspire other alumni and friends in Hong Kong to consider supporting the University, and look forward to seeing generations of talented ‘Tung Liverpool Scholars’ studying at the University.”
