Hong Kong Graduate Association (HKGA) Scholarship

These scholarships were established in 1997 following a generous donation from an anonymous benefactor.

The objectives of the scholarships are to promote educational exchange and academic research respectively, between the University of Liverpool and residents of Hong Kong SAR and the People's Republic of China.


A number of undergraduate scholarships shall be awarded to academically outstanding students originated from Hong Kong/China, who have been admitted to pursue full-time undergraduate studies leading to a bachelor degree in their chosen fields in the forthcoming academic year. The students are responsible for their own admission application and must submit proof of acceptance for admission to the University at the time of application to the Graduate Association.
Current students originating from Hong Kong/China who are already in their first or second year of undergraduate studies at the University of Liverpool at the time of application are also eligible to apply for the Scholarship. The students must submit, in addition to other relevant documents, a supporting letter from their academic tutor. 
Successful candidates will be awarded a scholarship to cover partial payment of the tuition fee or living expenses. The scholarship may or may not be held concurrently with any other scholarships or bursaries at the discretion of the Award Committee. Each scholarship is tenable for a period not exceeding three years. Renewal of scholarship is subject to satisfactory report and good academic performance on an annual basis.
