Li Ka Shing Foundation Lord Sandberg Memorial Scholarship 2019-20

King’s College London is pleased to offer the Li Ka Shing Foundation Lord Sandberg Memorial Scholarship worth £15,000 each to two students annually from Hong Kong.

What is the Li Ka Shing Foundation Lord Sandberg Memorial Scholarship?

The Li Ka Shing Foundation Lord Sandberg Memorial Scholarship has been established by the Li Ka Shing Foundation, in memory of Lord Michael Sandberg of Passfield, OBE, CBE, who passed away in 2017 and was considered a true friend of Hong Kong.

The Li Ka Shing Foundation Lord Sandberg Memorial Scholarship has been set up to support permanent Hong Kong residents planning to study a full-time three year undergraduate course at King’s.

The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of the applicant’s academic record and financial need, the latter of which will be determined by a personal statement. Students from any Hong Kong schools are welcome to apply, but preference will be given to students from a local school.

How Much is the Scholarship Worth?

Two scholarships will be available every year beginning in 2019-20 for seven years. The total value of the award per recipient is £15,000 (£5,000 per year for three years) to support tuition fees.  Please note any residual fee balances will still need to be met by the recipient.

Am I Eligible to Apply?

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Permanent Hong Kong resident
  • Outstanding academic performance
  • Provide a personal statement expressing how you have experienced financial hardship
  • Undertaking a full-time three year undergraduate programme at King’s

How Do I Apply?

Applications are now open and close on 6 March 2020.

Please complete the application form and email this to funding@kcl.ac.uk, along with a separate supporting statement as a separate Word document titled in the format "SURNAME, Forename - supporting statement - Li Ka Shing Foundation Lord Sandbery Memorial Scholarship." You will need to supply documentary evidence in support of your application (a checklist is provided in the application form).

Please note that by submitting an application for this scholarship, you are agreeing for the donor to review your application and personal statement.
