HKSAR Government Scholarship Fund

Hong Kong is a “prime platform and a key link for the Belt and Road Initiative” (2018 Policy Address, para 92).  With the full support of the HKSAR government in enabling Belt and Road Initiatives, the University is ready to groom and nurture talents who have the expertise and the commitment to build lasting linkages between their home community and Hong Kong.  As such, the University will support the studies of scholars from countries under the Belt and Road Initiative for their studies at HKU.

All students who hold nationality with one of the countries under the Belt and Road Initiative may apply for consideration of the scholarship.  The list of countries included may be found here (https://beltandroad.hktdc.com/en/country-profiles).
