|Background:||These awards were created by Mr. Ambrose Kwok-Yau Lee (B.Sc. 1962, SDU) with a series of generous gifts to the University of Prince Edward Island. Mr. Lee came to Prince Edward Island in 1958 to further his education. He discovered many friendships and developed lasting memories. After pursuing further education in Canada, Mr. Lee returned to Hong Kong where he still resides. Through the years, he has maintained contact with UPEI and his classmates.|
The university traces its roots back to 1804, when Lt. Governor Edmund Fanning and the Legislative Council of Prince Edward Island called for the establishment of Kent College. By 1820, the first Kent College building, known as "the National School", or James Breading's School was erected. Later succeeded by Central Academy, which received a Royal Charter in 1834.
