The scholarship is named after Sir Yue-Kong Pao and his father Pao Zhao-Long (Chinese: 包兆龍/包兆龙) who was also a successful businessman and banker.

The scholarship was first set in January 1983, based on the first donation of one million US dollar by Pao. October 1985, Pao donated another million USD to enlarge the scholarship.[2]
