HKU-APEC Study Abroad Scholarship

On the Donor

The United States, with eight other APEC economies, has launched the APEC Scholarship Initiative to benefit students from developing APEC economies.

APEC Scholarships aim to enable balanced and inclusive growth within and across the region, expand people-to-people exchanges, forge stronger regional ties, and enhance APEC’s reputation. These opportunities will also contribute to creating a new generation of leaders.

"HKU-APEC Study Abroad Scholarship" was set up under this Initiative at The University of Hong Kong to attract outstanding non-local students to pursue studies at the University, so as to promote international learning and foster cultural exchange.

Purpose and Scope

The Scholarships shall be awarded to non-local students who will be starting their 3rd or 4th year of their undergraduate studies at an university in the APEC region, who wish to come to HKU for a semester or academic year.

The scholarships shall be awarded on the basis of academic merit. Students should be within the top 10% of their class at their home institution.

Preference will be given to those who have contributed to the development of their country through volunteer work or similar, shown significant leadership potential or those who have excelled in a non-academic area such as sports, music, science/mathematics (including Olympiad successes) or debating (including MUN).

Preference will be given to students from countries with lower GDP per cap.
