On the Donor
Established in 1998, the Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships are dedicated to nurturing local talent. Some HK$400 million in scholarships has so far been awarded to more than 500 young people to pursue their studies.
The Scholarships reward outstanding students, known as JC Scholars, for their intellect, character, leadership qualities and commitment to service. A Scholarship Secretariat has been set up by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust to provide scholars with opportunities for learning, personal development and social service. It endeavours to help them become future community leaders.
Under the Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships - Undergraduate Scholarship scheme, up to five scholarships are awarded to students from HKU each year as follows:
- four local Hong Kong students*; and
- one student from the Chinese Mainland.
*One of the four scholarships for local Hong Kong students is dedicated to a student with special educational needs. These needs include physical/intellectual/visceral disabilities, visual/hearing/speech impairment, attention deficit/hyperactivitiy disorder, specific learning difficulties, autism and/or mental illness, as referred in 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 local and Chinese Mainland Year 1 or Year 2 students who are studying their first undergraduate degree.
