Ho Chin Tui Foundation
Ho Chin Tui Foundation was established in 1975, and has been committed to rewarding young students excellent in conduct and learning as well as diligent students from disadvantaged families. Due to the changes in the social environment later on, it was rare for students to discontinue their studies for poverty. Therefore, Ho Chin Tui Award was set up in 1991 to provide rewards to outstanding scholars who have been making long tern efforts and significant contributions to the development of the industries and economy in Taiwan in four major fields, including basic science (mathematical physics and biology), material science, metallurgy and environmental protection. Since 2006, the green building category has been also added, providing substantial rewards to those with outstanding achievements and contributions. The foundation was renamed in 2021, and it carries forward the purpose of the foundation to nourish great talents to encourage people to work hard, enjoy doing good deeds and promote talents, aiming at its sustainable development and expanding the scope of giving back to the society. The substantial rewards include the awarding of Medal of Honor and rewards of NTD 600,000. As of the end of 2021, there have been a cumulative of 168 winners of this award.
