The idea of launching a WGAHK Scholarship Fund was brought up at the October 2001 WGAHK monthly happy hour gathering. When Mr Patrick Lai (MBA 1987-88) offered a prompt donation of HK$3,000, the casual discussion was transformed into a real ball rolling. The WGAHK Scholarship Fund is the first Warwick scholarship established by local alumni outside the UK. The WGAHK Scholarship Founding Chairman is Miss Lisa Djeng (BSc Economics 1995-98), and subsequent Scholarship Chairmen include Miss Natalie Law (LLM International Economics Law 2000-01) and Dr Albert Yip (DLMBA 1990-95).
