What types of scholarship programme can I support?
HKU offers different types of scholarship programmes, as highlighted below:
Entrance Scholarships for Undergraduate Students
These are geared to attract local and non-local students pursuing full-time undergraduate degrees and are awarded on the basis of students’ academic performances at prevailing public examinations for admission to HKU.
These recognise the achievement of students who have the best overall performance in a particular study major.
Student Enrichment Scholarships
The undergraduate curriculum places a strong emphasis on building a student’s interdisciplinary knowledge base, and advocates experiential learning in addition to classroom learning. These enrichment scholarships encourage students to take part in a wide range of learning activities mostly overseas, such as academic exchanges, study tours, internships, research fellowships, and service learning / volunteering.
These enable the University to attract high-calibre students to pursue research postgraduate studies and to raise its research capabilities. These fellowships include awards for first-year research postgraduate students enrolled in regular PhD or joint PhD degree programmes; and for current PhD students to pursue MPhil degrees at partner institutions.
The University also provides bursaries and loans to help students with financial needs.
These aim to free needy students from financial constraints during their studies at HKU. An example is the First-in-the-Family Education Fund which supports students who are the first generation in their families to attend university to participate in outside-classroom learning activities. Please refer to this link for more details of busary schemes.
A Scholarship / Prize / Bursary can be named in honour of the Donor (individual, group or organisation) or a loved one.
