The first is a scholarship presented to a second-year Business undergraduate on the basis of academic merit, which can enable the recipient to widen his/her learning opportunities. The other award is a non-cash award to be presented each to a graduate of the HKU MBA Programme and a graduate of the HKU-Fudan University IMBA Programme, in recognition of outstanding academic performance.

|A Lifetime in Academia, an autobiography by
Dr Rayson Huang, has just been published by the HKU Press. This autobiography
begins by giving an interesting account of his early days in Shantou and
Hong Kong. Then came the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong when he moved
to Chungking, and finally via India, to take up a Rhodes scholarship at
Oxford. After his post-doctoral studies in Chicago, he spent ten years teaching
in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur; during this period he also made important
contribution to free radical chemistry research, the impact of which is
still felt today. In the last phase of his working life, Dr Huang served
as vice-chancellor of Nanyang University in Singapore and of the University
of Hong Kong. He also sat on Hong Kong's Legislative Council and on the
Basic Law Drafting Committee for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
The beauty of A Lifetime in Academia lies not only in chronicling Dr Huang's lifelong devotion to university education, but also in contributing a celebrated chapter to the history of the twentieth century.
A special autographed edition of the book is available. All proceeds will go to the "Grace Wei Huang Memorial Fund" for the promotion of business studies in HKU.
