HKU to confer Honorary University Fellowships on four distinguished individuals
The University of Hong Kong will confer Honorary University Fellowships on four distinguished individuals, namely, Mr George Joseph HO, Mr LO Sheung Yan, Dr Norman SZE Nung Chi, and Mr Henry WAI Wing Kun, in recognition of their contributions to the University and society.

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020, the University initially decided to postpone the Honorary University Fellowships Presentation Ceremony originally scheduled for September of that year to late February 2021. Given the ongoing developments in the COVID-19 situation, the ceremony was not held in February as planned. Accordingly, the four distinguished individuals mentioned above will be honoured at a ceremony to be held at HKU in the Fall Semester of this year to receive the award together with the Honorary University Fellows of 2021, for which nominations are now being invited.
The Fellowships are a means for the University community to thank and salute those who have made important contributions in their own unique ways to the University, to academia, and to Hong Kong. The Honorary University Fellowships was established in 1995 to reaffirm the University's link between town and gown. To date, the University has honoured 161 Fellows.
