    C. Y. Tung Scholarship for Semester At Sea (SAS) (2020 Spring Voyage)

    15 JUL - 16 SEP 2019
    C. Y. Tung Scholarship for Semester At Sea (SAS) (2020 Spring Voyage)

    The C. Y. Tung Scholarship is donated by the Hon Tung Chee Hwa and his family to honor his father C. Y. Tung. Each voyage that visits China (currently only Spring voyages), a small cohort of US and Chinese students are awarded a USD25,000 scholarship, which almost fully covers the SAS programme fees. During 2014 and 2018, a total of six HKBU students were awarded the C. Y. Tung Scholarship.

     

    Founded in 1963, Semester at Sea (SAS) is the world’s premier global comparative education programme open to students of all majors from around the world. The programme is administered by the Institute for Shipboard Education (ISE) and the Colorado State University is the academic sponsor. Over the past five decades, SAS sailed about 110 voyages, educated 55,000 students from 1,700 institutions around the world and travelled to more than 60 countries.

     

    The 2020 Spring Voyage (4 January - 20 April 2020) is now open for online application while the application of C. Y. Tung Scholarship is now open until 16 September 2019. Please click here for more details.

     

     

    Information Session

    An information session will be held in early September in which more details about the SAS programme and scholarship application will be introduced. The 2018 C. Y. Tung Scholar from HKBU will also share his precious experiences and hints for successful application in the session. Students who are interested in applying for the programme and scholarships are strongly recommended to attend. Please stay tuned for the actual date of the Information Session.

    5屆中國互聯網+大學生創新創業大賽

    中國互聯網+大學生創新創業大賽(下稱「互聯網+」)始於2015年。這項大賽是國務院李克強總理親自提議,並由國家教育部主辦。每屆吸引2200多所高校、265萬名大學生參賽,被媒體譽為「全球最大最好的路演平台」!「互聯網+」涵蓋範圍寬廣,項目內容方面,囊括了資訊技術、文化創意、生物醫藥、節能環保、教育培訓、醫療健康、社會企業等範疇,從造福民生社會到改變世界;參賽者方面,不僅包括在讀大專生、|研究生,還包括畢業5年內的畢業生以及師生聯合組隊(師生共創項目)

    2018年5月,大賽組委會正式授權香港新一代文化協會作為「互聯網+」香港賽區選拔賽的組織機構,並負責組織香港特別行政區代表隊參加每年的全國賽。因此去年是香港首次以「香港特別行政區代表隊」名義參賽,共派出20個項目參加終審決賽,榮獲3項金奬、7項銀奬、10項銅奬。香港大學更榮獲「先進集體奬」(全國高校僅20所可獲此殊榮)。成績令人鼓舞!
