On the Donor

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust aims to identify and groom outstanding talents to become leaders who will create positive change and inspire society to strive for excellence.  Since 1998, some HK$400million were awarded to more than 400 young talents to support their undergraduate programmes at eight UGC-funded institutions and the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.

Each institution will receive up to five scholarship awards:

  • Four local Hong Kong students*; and
  • One student from the Chinese Mainland.

*One of the four scholarships for local Hong Kong students is dedicated for a student with special education needs.  These needs include physical disabilities, visual impairment, hearing impairment, speech and language impairment, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders, specific learning difficulties, autism spectrum disorders and/or intellectual disabilities, as referred to the Hong Kong Rehabilitation Programme Plan released by the Labour and Welfare Bureau of the HKSAR Government.

Purpose and Scope

The Scholarship usually opens for applications around September each year.  It is open to full-time Year 1 or Year 2 students who are permanent Hong Kong residents or citizens of the People's Republic of China, and who are studying their first undergraduate degree. Scholars are selected according to their merits and attirbutes in the following aspects: (i) intellect, (ii) leadership, (iiii) character, and (iv) commitment to service.

The Scholarship covers tuition fee, academic and living expenses.  It is renewable for the normative period of study of the enrolled undergraduate programme, subject to satisfactory academic performance and participation in community services.
