Scholarships for Local Studies

Most of the University scholarships/ awards are granted on the basis of academic merit. Yet other criteria such as leadership, personal qualities, financial need as well as records of extra-curricular activities and community services may also be taken into consideration.

Many of the scholarship recipients are nominated by Faculties / Schools / Departments or other relevant offices of the University, subject to the final selection / approval by the donors. On the other hand, some scholarships are open to students for application. Announcement of such scholarships will be posted under Open for Applications on this website. CUHK students are advised to visit this section from time to time for the scholarships/awards which fit their needs.

Colleges also administer their own scholarships, and students may check with their respective Colleges for further details.
