Scholarships, fellowships and awards, which are donated by private organizations, professional bodies, firms and individuals, are bestowed upon the selected recipients including new students on the basis of academic merits and other criteria stipulated by the donors. All the scholarships listed under this website are for full-time students undertaking UGC-funded / publicly-funded programmes only, unless specified.
The Undergraduate Scholarship Committee is set up to formulate policies on the design and deployment of scholarships, and formulate general policies and procedures governing the administration of awards and the selection of recipients.
Students are awarded scholarships through the following three means:
1. By open application – the main round of application for general scholarships is open in late August to September each year; while individual scholarships are open for application whenever requested by the donors. Internal selection will be made on the basis of academic merit, leadership and other personal qualities, financial need and services to the community. Internal and/or external selection interviews may be needed.
2. By nominations from Faculties/Schools/Departments and other relevant offices, subject to the final selection/approval by the donating parties.
3. A number of scholarships/awards donated by external parties are open for application throughout the year. Interested students should submit their applications to the donors directly. Please watch out the details from “News & Announcement”.
