HKSAR GOVERNMENT SELF-FINANCING POST-SECONDARY SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME 2012/13

To promote the development of the self-financing post-secondary sector, the Self-financing Post-secondary Scholarship Scheme (SPSS) is set up by the HKSAR Government under the Self-financing Post-secondary Education Fund to offer scholarships and awards to students pursuing full-time Higher Diploma in Film (HD in Film) and Bachelor of Commerce (Hons.) in Accountancy (BCom Accountancy) programmes at HKBU. For the 2012/13 academic year, there are four types of scholarships offered under the Scheme as follows:

1) Outstanding Performance Scholarship (OPS) will be awarded to 1 current non-local student (at HK$80,000 each) or 2 current local students (at HK$40,000 each) of the BCom Accountancy programme, and 4 current local or non-local students (at HK$30,000 each) of the HD in Film programmes.

2) Talent Development Scholarship (TDS) will be awarded to current local or non-local students (at HK$10,000 each) of the BCom Accountancy programme (2 recipients) and HD in Film programmes (3 recipients) to give recognition to those who have demonstrated achievements or talent in non-academic areas and provide support for them to further develop their talent and potential.

3) Reaching Out Award (ROA) will be awarded to current local or non-local students (at HK$10,000 each) of the BCom Accountancy programme (2 recipients) and HD in Film programmes (3 recipients) to support those who are nominated by HKBU to participate in learning, internship or service programmes, as well as national, regional and international events and competitions that are conducted outside Hong Kong and organised/endorsed by HKBU.

4) Best Progress Award (BPA) will be open for competition to all self-financing post-secondary students in Hong Kong who have already completed at least two consecutive academic years in their programmes. HKBU will nominate 1 student from the HD in Film programmes and 1 from the BCom Accountancy programme to compete for the Award (no application is required).

A student may be awarded the OPS/TDS more than once throughout his studies of the relevant programme, and each nomination will be considered based on individual merits. However, a student may only be awarded the BPA/ROA once throughout his studies of the relevant programme.

Priority will be given to those students who have not previously received any awards under the SPSS so as to allow more students to benefit.
