Since its launch benefaction in 2011, the Innovation and Technology Scholarship Award Scheme has honoured 150 creative and innovative young people in the past five years. The Scheme aims to provide recognition to outstanding local undergraduates as well as giving them the opportunity to widen their exposure and encouraging them to pursue science and technology as a lifelong career.

Out of twenty five recipients selected this year, seven are HKU students. They will have the privilege of participating in a series of programmes, comprising of overseas/mainland attachments, mentorship, service projects, and local internships.
