Financial Assistance for Students Studying Abroad
Studying abroad is a wonderful experience. It offers students a chance to enjoy school life and to visit a country at the same time. However, studying abroad is costly.
Scholarships available for overseas studies
There are also other scholarship programmes offered by several memorial funds available for overseas studies e.g. the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fund (including Fellowships for Overseas Studies for postgraduate students, Scholarships for Overseas Studies for undergraduate students and Overseas Fellowship / Scholarship for Disabled Students) and the Sir Robert Black Trust Fund - Scholarships.
Scholarships for Agricultural and Fisheries Industries
The Agricultural Products Scholarship Fund and Marine Fish Scholarship Fund (Tertiary Education Awards) may offer support to persons related to agricultural and fisheries industries.

If you want to pursue music or dance studies overseas, the scholarships awarded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Music and Dance Fund are for you. It promotes training and education in music and dance through scholarships for young people to pursue an integrated programme at renowned institutions in music or dance studies outside Hong Kong
