Scholarship and Bursary Donors’ Tea Reception
The Office of Student Affairs held the annual Scholarship and Bursary Donors’ Tea Reception on 26 April 2017 to express its gratitude to donors for their generosity and untiring support to the University over the years and to provide an opportunity for the beneficiaries to thank the donors in person.
In academic year 2016-2017, HKBU received generous donations from more than 250 organisations, professional bodies, firms and individuals. Over 2,000 scholarship and bursary awards totalling around HK$42 million were presented to around 1,700 outstanding students from different Faculties and Schools. Speaking on the occasion, Professor Roland Chin, President and Vice-Chancellor, said that the University recorded a 26% increase in the total donation amount received in this academic year when compared to the figures five years ago. This has been made possible by the steady climb in donations over the past years. He expressed his gratitude to the donors for their support and looked forward to their continued partnership with HKBU in nurturing brilliant leaders of tomorrow.
