Harilela Scholarship 2020-21

Scholarship worth up to £120,000


What is the Harilela Scholarship?

The Harilela Scholarship have been established by Aron Harilela, a generous donor and friend of King’s College London.

The Harilela Scholarships aim to support Hong Kong residents planning to study for a three year undergraduate programme in the School of Management and Business. The Scholarships will be awarded based on financial circumstances, a personal statement and academic excellence.

In the academic year 2020-21, one scholarship will be available. The value of each award is £120,000 (£40,000 per year, for three years) to support tuition fees, with any residual funds being made available as a bursary. Please note any residual fee balances will still need to be met yourself.

The winner will be selected on the basis of a personal statement as well as consideration of demonstrable financial hardship.
