Alumni in Canada Set Up a Scholarship for Needy Students

Alumni, their family members and mentees in Ontario attended the fall hiking trip at the Oak Ridges Trail in King City.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of their alma mater, members of the Hong Kong University Alumni Association of Ontario (HKUAA Ontario) championed a fundraising initiative to set up a scholarship for needy students to participate in overseas exchange during their undergraduate studies.

Experiential learning stimulates the students’ academic learning and is now an integral component of the four-year undergraduate curriculum at HKU. Knowing that overseas exchange would be a financial burden on less-privileged students, over 40 alumni residing in Canada levelled the playing field by establishing the “HKUAA Ontario Student Exchange Scholarship (香港大學安省校友會交換生獎學金)”.

Special thanks go to Tim Cheng 鄭天祥 (BSc 1970), Dennis Auyeung 歐陽健昌 (BSc 1977), and Augustine Chan 陳億崙 (BA 1982) who initiated and co-ordinated the fundraising appeal and helped make this Scholarship a reality.
