    The Hong Kong Scholarship for Excellence Scheme (HKSES) aims to support local students to pursue undergraduate or postgraduate studies at world renowned universities outside Hong Kong (i.e. during the period of August 2021 to July 2022), with a view to grooming a top cadre of talents with global vision, international network and world-class education, thereby contributing to enhancing Hong Kong’s competitiveness as Asia’s World City in a globalised knowledge economy.
