Meiyu Li Memorial Graduate Scholarship in Economics

This fund was established to honour Meiyu Li, an outstanding PhD candidate who impressed all who knew her with her intelligence, generosity, enthusiasm and work ethic. Sadly, Meiyu passed away at the age of 27 in a car accident. During her studies at SFU, she was a recipent of various scholarships and hoped to one day give back to the university by establishing a scholarship on her own. With generous gifts from friends, family and the larger SFU community, the Meiyu Li Memorial Graduate Scholarship in Economics was established in 2020 to honour this wish.
