Shun Hing College Residential Scholarship for Sports Scholars
On the Donor
Shun Hing College, a residential college for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, is committed to building a vibrant and inclusive community of students and scholars. In view of the University’s policy to promote internationalisation, the College strives to serve as a hub for academic and cultural exchanges with leading international institutions.
A portion of the annual interest of the Shun Hing College Endowment Fund generously donated by the Shun Hing Group, has been used to award Exchange Scholarships and Residential Scholarships since academic year 2015-16. A new Residential Scholarship scheme designated for Sports Scholars was established in August 2019.

- A reasonable level of academic performance in the previous academic year
