Scholarships & Students’ Co-curricular Achievements

To recognize and encourage academic and non-academic achievements, the EdUHK offers various external and internal scholarships and awards to outstanding students.

I. Scholarships

Scholarships are granted to students on the basis of academic merits. Other attributes, such as leadership qualities, involvement in co-curricular activities and contribution to the society/ University, may also be taken into consideration.

Most of the scholarships are donated by external organizations and individuals who support the education of young people. With the staunch support of our donors, the number of scholarships granted in 2017/18 is around 770, worth about $21m.

 

Of all the scholarships granted, some are also open for application to students from other universities in Hong Kong. Despite keen competition, our students successfully obtained these scholarships. They include:

1. Sir Edward Youde Memorial Scholarship for Undergraduate Students 2017/18

II. Non-academic Achievements

Apart from excellent academic performance, the EdUHK also considers it vital to encourage students’ active engagement in co-curricular activities so as to build value systems and personalities, broaden horizons and absorb knowledge from alternative and non-traditional channels. Two award schemes are introduced to provide University-level recognition to students’ non-academic achievements.

1. President’s Commendation Scheme

The President’s Commendation Scheme was established in 2010 to recognize students who achieve outstanding performance in specific non-academic areas:

  • Arts and Culture
  • Community Services
  • Innovation, Science and Technology
  • Leadership
  • Sports

There is a two-tier structure in the level of recognition in the Scheme.  “President’s Commendation” is the highest level of award granted to students with impactful achievements while “President’s Appreciation” is for students with exemplary achievements.

In 2017/18, two students were awarded “President’s Commendation” and another six students and one student group were granted “President’s Appreciation”.

2. Whole Person Development Award

Complementary to the formal curriculum, non-formal learning is an essential component of students’ whole person development. To further encourage students to actively participate in local and overseas experiential learning activities beyond the classroom, the EdUHK has launched a new 3-level award system to provide formal recognition to students’ non-formal learning experiences starting from 2017/18.

For “Whole Person Development Certificate” and “Whole Person Development Advanced Certificate”, students are awarded primarily on the basis on their participation record in The Experiential Learning and Achievements Transcript, which is a comprehensive record of their non-academic achievement and participation in experiential learning activities during their course of study in the EdUHK. Organizing and leading performances will also be considered in granting the “Dean of Students’ List”, the highest level of award in the system.

In 2017/18, seven students were awarded “Dean of Students’ List”.
