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.
There are also other scholarship programmes offered by several memorial funds available for overseas studies e.g. the Li Po Chun Charitable Trust Fund – Overseas Postgraduate Study and Professional Training Scholarship, 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.
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.
If you intend to study in England, you may consider the postgraduate scholarship for studying at the University of Birmingham.
The Japanese Government (Monbukagakusho:MEXT) Scholarship (Undergraduate Student) provides opportunities for Hong Kong students who wish to continue their studies at universities in Japan. The awards are normally tenable for five years except for those majoring in Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine or the six-year course of Pharmacy, whose term of scholarship is seven years. Each scholarship will normally cover tuition, accommodation, allowances, partial medical expenses and return passage.
