Scholarships, fellowships and awards, which are donated by private organizations, professional bodies, firms and individuals, are bestowed upon the selected recipients including new students on the basis of academic merits and other criteria stipulated by the donors. Most of the scholarships are for full-time students undertaking UGC-funded / publicly-funded courses. In 2016-2017 academic year, around 1,700 individual scholarships and prizes will be awarded through the University to students in various disciplines of study, with the total combined value amounting to approximately HK$38 million.
Students will be awarded scholarships through the following three means:
1. By open application – the main round of application for University Scholarships is open in late August to September each year; while individual scholarships are open for application whenever requested by the donors. Internal selection will then be made on the basis of academic merit, leadership and other personal qualities, financial need and services to the community. Internal and /or external selection interviews may be needed.
2. By nominations from Faculties / Schools / Departments and other relevant offices, subject to the final selection / approval by the donating parties.
3. A number of scholarships/ awards donated by external parties are open for application throughout the year. Interested students should submit their applications to the donors directly. Please watch out the details from “News and Event”.
