HONOLULU – Dr. Lawrence K. W. Tseu of Honolulu has established the Dr. & Mrs. Lawrence K.W. (BoHing Chan) Tseu Endowed Scholarship in Nursing at the UH Mānoa


School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene (SONDH) with a $100,000 gift. This fund will provide scholarship assistance to students in the Masters Entry Program in Nursing.

“My wife always said we were so fortunate and blessed and that we must share those blessings with others who are in need.  That has always and continues to guide me, and I strongly believe in leading by example,” said Dr. Tseu. “I am very grateful that I am able to assist in making quality nursing education accessible to students from all backgrounds.”

Dr. Tseu was named Outstanding Philanthropist by the Hawai‘i chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals in 2006.

Cancer Research Center, Salvation Army, East-West Center Foundation, Friends of the Hawai‘i State Art Museum, and Palolo Chinese Home. “Dr. Tseu has distinguished himself as a compassionate humanitarian who has dedicated much time and energy to community reinvestment,” said Donna Vuchinich, president and CEO, UH Foundation. “This gift builds on his philanthropic legacy and will greatly help nursing students for many years to come.”

“In memory of his late wife BoHing Tseu, Dr. Tseu is joining with UH Mānoa to transform nursing education in Hawai‘i,” said Mary Boland, dean, School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene. “Together, we are partnering to ensure that nurses are prepared to deliver patient-centered high quality care and assume leadership roles in the redesign of the health care system.”
