Taufik Ali Memorial Scholarships

On the Donor

In 1963, a trust fund administered by HSBC Trustees (Hong Kong) Limited, under the Will of the late Mr Taufik Ali who served at Hong Kong Electric, established a scholarship and bursary scheme to support students at The University of Hong Kong.

Purpose and Scope

The Scholarships shall be awarded each year, on the basis of academic merit, to students who are enrolled in undergraduate, postgraduate degree, Diploma or Certificate programmes at the University. Awardees must be of the Muslim faith and born in Penang or Hong Kong.

The value of the Scholarships per year shall be made up of the following three components:

(i) the tuition fee paid/payable by the awardee that year; and

(ii) a living allowance up to the maximum government loan amount for that year (Note: For awardees who are receiving the Taufik Ali Memorial Bursaries concurrently, the maximum living allowance payable shall be the difference (if any) between the maximum government loan and the value of the Taufik Ali Memorial Bursaries); and

(iii) up to HK$150,000 per year for enrichment activities such as study tours, academic conference, exchange and cultural immersion programmes, internships, research trips, and service learning (Note: Additional financial support for enrichment activities may be granted to awardees, on a case-by-case basis).

The 2018-19 round of applications has closed.  Results are expected to be available in the second quarter of 2019.
