A new scholarship aimed at attracting high-performing students has been launched by City University of Hong Kong (CityU).
The CityU Scholarships for Hong Kong Talents target students applying for undergraduate programmes through Jupas and non-Jupas.
Starting from September, Jupas entrants who have 4 subjects or above with 5** and level 4 or above in Chinese or English in the HKDSE will be awarded HK$60,000 per year of study.
Those who have three subjects, two subjects or one subject with 5** and level 4 or above in Chinese or English in the HKDSE will be awarded HK$50,000, HK$30,000 and HK$20,000, respectively, per year of study.
These awards for Jupas entrants are available for a maximum period of four years and include an extra
HK$25,000 as a one-off exchange scholarship.
Local non-Jupas entrants – students who receive 4 A*s in GCE (AL) or score 41 or above (including the bonus) in the IB – will be awarded HK$60,000. Those who receive 2 A*s and 1 A in GCE (AL) or score 38 or above (including the bonus) in the IB will be awarded HK$50,000 per year.
Students who get 1 A* and 2 As in GCE (AL) or score 36 or above (including the bonus) in the IB will be awarded HK$30,000 per year. Those who get 3 As in GCE (AL) or score 35 (including the bonus) in the IB will be awarded HK$20,000 per year.
These scholarships for non-Jupas entrants are available for a maximum period of four years for first-year entry or three years for Advanced Standing I entry, and include an extra HK$25,000 as a one-off exchange scholarship.
The scholarships also offer recipients global experience through overseas exchange and the CityU Global Work Attachment Scheme.
Students can widen their horizons through academic mentorship and engage in academic research early on in their studies.
They can also strengthen their personal development by taking part in the Golden Key Club, a unique platform enabling CityU scholarship recipients of different disciplines to further boost their competitiveness in their chosen career.
The scholarships are in line with CityU’s commitment to nurturing the talents of students and creating knowledge to support social and economic development.
CityU’s unique undergraduate curriculum, the Discovery-enriched Curriculum, encourages all students to make original discoveries at CityU, and thereby learn how to pursue their own interests in creative and original ways.
