J. S. Lee Memorial Fellowship Programme
The J. S. Lee Memorial Fellowship Programme was established in 2008 in memory of Dr. Lee Jung Sen’s lifelong promotion and contribution towards Chinese art. Dr. Lee was the founder of Bei Shan Tang Foundation and a distinguished philanthropist in Hong Kong who valued the importance of arts to a society and the need to nurture cultural developments. He was a major benefactor of the Chinese University of Hong Kong and supported the building of its Institute of Chinese Studies and the Art Museum. He also supported numerous museums and art institutions in China and abroad, including the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Shanghai Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, the Oriental Ceramic Society and Percival David Foundation of Chinese Art in London.
