Young Tsun Dart Scholarship

On the Donor

In 1961, Mrs Young Tsun Dart donated a sum in memory of her husband, Mr Young Tsun Dart, to establish Scholarship and Bursary tenable by students in the Faculty of Engineering reading for the degree of BEng. Mr Young was a major figure in the history of the transportation industry in Hong Kong and the former Secretary of the Yaumati Ferry Company. In 1984-85, the Bursary scheme was phased out. In 2022, the value of each scholarship was increased from HK$10,000 to HK$15,000 for a maximum of six scholarships each year. 

Purpose and Scope

Up to six scholarships shall be awarded annually, two each to full-time undergraduate students in the second, third and fourth year of study in the Faculty of Engineering.

The Scholarship shall be awarded on the basis of academic merit. Other factors such as participation in community service and finance need may be taken into consideration.
