HKSAR Government Scholarship Fund - Endeavour Merit Award
香港特別行政區政府獎學基金 - 展毅表現獎
On the Donor
With a view to attracting outstanding local students to advance their studies at home, and meritorious non-local students to pursue higher education opportunities in Hong Kong, the Government established in 2008 the HKSAR Government Scholarship Fund (the Fund) to recognize outstanding local and non-local students.
Purpose and Scope
The Endeavour Merit Award (EMA), which is granted on a competitive basis, is set up to give recognition to students with special educational needs (SEN) in the pursuit of excellence in academic and other areas.
The scheme is open to students with SEN who are currently pursuing full-time publicly/UGC-funded undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Awardees will be selected on the basis of academic merit (Note: The minimum CGPA requirement is 2.5. For research postgraduate students, recommendation letters from their supervisors are required).
Notes to Applicants:
- Examples of SEN include: specific learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder, physical disability, visual impairment, hearing impairment, and speech and language impairment, etc.
- The EMA cannot be held concurrently with the HKSAR Government Scholarship.
- Applicants must enclose proof of SEN in their applications.
- A student may be awarded the EMA more than once throughout his/her studies, and each application shall be considered based on individual merit and against other applications received in that year.
Applications for the 2019-20 Scholarship will open in early November 2019 and close in early December 2019. Please click here for application details. Results are expected to be announced in March 2020.
