A Special Gift to APSS establishes the Dr David Ip Memorial Award
“While David is no longer with us, this Award definitely proves that his inspiration remains with us!”
APSS is pleased to announce the creation of the Dr David Ip Memorial Award, following a generous donation of HK$100,000 from Ms Marice Ip. In October 2021, Ms Ip established this new award to commemorate her late and beloved uncle Dr David Ip Fu Keung.
Up to two undergraduate students majoring in Social Policy and Social Entrepreneurship and one taught postgraduate student who is admitted under the Master of Arts in Social Policy and Social Development (MASPSD) programme in APSS would be granted the Award annually on the basis of academic merit. The value of each Award is HK$5,000.
APSS extends its heartfelt gratitude to the generous donation and Dr Ip for over eight years of service to the Department and PolyU in his capacity as Associate Professor since 2008, Associate Head & DRC Chair since 2011, and Interim Head of Department in 2015.
The establishment of the Dr David Ip Memorial Award is an important moment in APSS’ history, as it reflects our long-standing commitment to social policy, social development, and social entrepreneurship.
While David is no longer with us, this Award definitely proves that his inspiration remains with us!
Thank you once again David and Marice for your generosity and love to APSS!
