The comprehensive Scholarship Program combines nurturing of local future leaders and participation in community services. Not only does it provide the awardees with financial support for undergraduate studies, but it also offers opportunities for whole-person development and, more importantly, community services for helping others.

The D. H. Chen Foundation and Oxford are united by a shared ambition. We aim to increase the opportunities and support available to bright young students, helping them realise their potential regardless of their background or financial circumstances. Our ground-breaking scholarship programme will allow talented students from Hong Kong to study here, and take full advantage of all that Oxford has to offer.

As parents of one of The D. H. Chen Foundation Scholars, I and my wife are extremely grateful to the Foundation for bringing this very well thought out, comprehensive scholarship program into reality and success. It creates an opportunity and network for these future leaders, who will emerge year after year, to get together, interact and join hands to contribute and give back to society in the long run.

The Scholarship offers my daughter many unique opportunities in enriching her learning, leadership and service experience that nurtures her to become a more capable and benevolent person. It provides resourceful support to all the Scholars to develop their potentials and actualize their aspirations for driving social good.

There is a wise saying from a Thirukkural – an ancient Indian literary work that expounds the truth of life. “The duty of the father towards his children is to give a head start in knowledge over the best of scholars.” The Foundation with no exaggeration is like a father organization supporting young scholars. I thank the Foundation for the trust and encouragement given to the Scholars to achieve their best and contribute to the community.

Eva Weng
Mother of Yuki Ip
2016 HKU Scholar

To the Scholars, being awarded The D. H. Chen Foundation Scholarship is not only a form of recognition, but also a motivation for them to soar to greater heights. I hope this serves as an encouragement, as well as a constant reminder for them to serve the society, especially the underprivileged, with a grateful heart.
