Hong Kong Scholarship 2020-21
King’s College London is pleased to offer the Hong Kong Scholarships worth £15,000 each to two outstanding first-year undergraduate students from Hong Kong.
What is the Hong Kong Scholarship?
The Hong Kong Scholarships are sponsored by the King’s Alumni Association in Hong Kong. The branch was first formed in 1982 for the benefit of King’s alumni living in Hong Kong. It is the aim of the scholarship to provide support to exceptional students at King’s with the intention that students will return to Hong Kong after graduation to contribute to Hong Kong interests.
The Hong Kong Scholarships aim to support Hong Kong residents planning to study for any three-year undergraduate course at King’s with a scholarship of £15,000 over three years. This prestigious scholarship will be awarded based on academic excellence and personal statement.
How much is the scholarship worth?
In the 2020-21 academic year, two scholarships will be available. The total value of each award is £15,000 (£5,000 per student annually, for three years maximum).
Students undertaking an UG course that is more than 3 years may apply but funding will only be given for 3 years. Study abroad years, intercalated years and repeat years are not included with this scholarship. If you are awarded this scholarship, you will be required to submit an annual end of year report until your end of studies and by accepting this award you are agreeing to submit this information. Failure to do so may result in your scholarship being rescinded.
Scholarship recipients may also be invited to meet with members of the Hong Kong Alumni Association and other recipients annually in a private event.
