Aiming at recognizing students’ distinctive leadership and all-rounded achievements, encouraging students’ whole-person development, as well as erecting role models for potential student leaders to learn from, the University has established a new award scheme, namely, the HKBU Outstanding Student Leaders Awards since 2012/13. In the 2017/18 academic year, up to twelve awards of HK$5,000 each are available.
The awards shall be awarded to full-time year 2 or above undergraduate students of UGC-funded programmes in any disciplines who have:
(a) satisfactory academic performance (cumulative GPA of 2.80 or above);
(b) good attitude and communication skills;
(c) strong leadership qualities as demonstrated in extra-curricular activities;
(d) outstanding record of services/contributions in the university or/and community.
**Note that students who have already received the HKBU Outstanding Student Leaders Awards in previous years are not eligible to apply.
Recipients of the Awards are obliged to:
(a) attend the Donors' Tea Reception on 2 May 2018 (Wednesday) as a Scholarship Ambassador;
(b) give sharings through presentations, writings, exhibitions, etc., upon invitation;
(c) be the role models of HKBU and help promote the University's image.
