South China Programme
The objective of the Programme is to foster and support academic research on China by offering grants with the generous donation of Dr. Cheng Yu-tung and Dr. Lee Shau-kee in the 1990s. It aims to encourage scholars in the University to inform policy formulation through their research findings.
Regionally, the grant supports studies on Hong Kong, Mainland China, as well as the area’s interrelated development with Macao, Taiwan and other parts of the world. Therefore, in addition to individual research and interdisciplinary collaboration, it also supports research partnerships across and outside the Asia-Pacific region.
