In 1967, to mark the centenary of Swire in the Far East, the Swire Group contributed 10 Swire Scholarships and Studentships to enable students to continue their studies while residing at Robert Black College of the University. Thanks to the Group’s generosity, there are now more than 350 Swire Scholars.


Professor Vivian Yam Wing-Wah (BSc 1985, PhD 1988), HKU Philip Wong Wilson Wong Professor in Chemistry and Energy, was one of the recipients of the scholarship.
