K. The Leverhulme Trust Fund of the United Kingdom has offered to The Chinese University of Hong Kong a grant of 16,000 ($256,000) to establish an academic interchange programme between The Chinese University and British universities for a period of five years. The offer was accepted by the University Council on November 30. The Leverhulme Trust Fund is a well-known British institution with the purpose of promoting scholarship and research in British universities. This support from a British foundation marks the beginning of developing relations and cooperation between The Chinese University and British universities. " The grant allows the University complete discretion in inviting scholars of any British university to lecture in The Chinese University and in sending our teaching staff to any British university," said the Vice- Chancellor. " The Chinese University has in the past established exchange programmes with many first rate universities in America; the Leverhulme Grant will now enable us to expand our working relations with British universities."
