CUHK Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships for Excellence
With effect from 2021 entry, CUHK Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships for Excellence will be offered to the most outstanding freshmen admitted to full-time undergraduate programmes.
Each year, 8 non-renewable awards of HK$50,000 each will be given out to the distinguished new students admitted to any full-time undergraduate programmes, irrespective of the admission channel and residency.
Selection will be based on both academic and non-academic achievements, including their entrance results, first-term academic results, language proficiency, track record of distinguished leadership, commitment to service and awards attained. When candidates are of equal standard, their familial financial condition will also be considered.
Students will be invited by the Faculties to compete for this Scholarship after the academic year has commenced. Scholarship details will be announced every October through Faculties.
