To avoid being late, you should upload your PDF well before the deadline, as there may be unexpected technical errors/difficulties that require you extra time to solve. Note that the submission time is subject to our system’s clock on the website, which may or may not be the same as your watch, and the Office of Student Affairs has the discretion to make final judgments on whether the application is considered late.
  7.

Please ask your nominator to send the confidential report to the Office of Student Affairs by email to sfa@hkbu.edu.hk by 5 October 2022 (Wednesday) the latest. 

Submission without the required documentary proofs will NOT be considered. Partial submissions / late applications will NOT be considered either. 

Due to very limited nomination quota, only shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend an internal panel interview at HKBU tentatively on 11 or 12 October 2022. Suitable candidates will then be recommended to the Fund Council for their final selection. For your information, the final interview organized by the Fund Council has been tentatively scheduled for December 2022 in Hong Kong. If you are not physically in Hong Kong and/or you are unable to attend both interviews in Hong Kong, please do not apply.
