Matthew Mak Ho-Ching (BA 2016), Patricia Kwok Pui-Ki (BA 2016) and Julius Yam Shi-Rong (LLB 2015; PCLL 2016) are embarking on life-changing journeys with the support of The R C Lee Centenary Scholarship. Established to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Dr Richard Charles Lee, one of Hong Kong’s foremost businessmen and philanthropists of his day, the Scholarship aims to encourage bright minds to pursue further studies overseas.
Matthew, a 2017 RC Lee Scholar who aspires to dedicate his life to equality, shared his academic aspirations: “With the generous support of the Scholarship, I am able to read for a doctoral degree in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford. My research interests lie in the interface of neuroscience and linguistics. The goals of my research are to understand how the human brain acquires language and why that process may malfunction, and develop a curative for language disabilities. I am confident that my research output will make lives better and get us closer to answers.”
