    The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) today sets a new record in the award of scholarships and bursaries to 665 students, totaling approximately HK$ 6.4 million.

    This year, 403 students are awarded scholarships for their meritorious academic achievements, while 262 students are granted with bursaries to help ease their financial burden.

    Officiating at the presentation ceremony, OUHK Council Chairman Mr Michael Wong Yick-kam said, “OUHK believes that each and every person has equal opportunity to receive higher education, and that the University has helped countless determined individuals to realize their university dreams over the years. We are truly grateful to have received the widespread and longstanding support from the community to enrich our Student Assistance Fund, allowing many of our students to overcome their own limitations and create a better future for themselves.”

    OUHK President Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong said, “We are delighted to say that more awards are disbursed this year compared to last year, which means that OUHK students are gaining more and more support from the society, and that the contribution the University has made in the last 20 years to local higher education is widely recognized and appreciated.”

    Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong applauded the awardees for their outstanding achievements, and also praised the many other students who have excelled in various areas and have won numerous awards in external competitions. He encouraged every OUHK student to pursue their goals and to always keep up their best efforts.

    A total of 81 award categories were granted by the OUHK to distance-learning and full-time students in the academic year 2015-16. Two of the awards were newly set up, namely the “HSBC Vocational Education Scholarship” and “Zheng Jian Peng Scholarship”.

    Donated by The Hongkong Bank Foundation, the “HSBC Vocational Education Scholarship” will be granting a maximum of two awards to full-time students studying sub-degree programmes at the OUHK annually. In addition to this newly established scholarship, The Hongkong Bank Foundation has been offering financial support to OUHK students since 1994 and later set up the HSBC Hong Kong Scholarship to award outstanding full-time degree students.

    Alumnus Mr Zheng Jian-peng donated HK$180,000 to set up the “Zheng Jian Peng Scholarship” to recognize final year full-time undergraduate accounting students with outstanding academic performance. Nine awards of $20,000 each will be disbursed in three years. Mr Zhang has also donated HK$ 120,000 to establish the “Dr T Y Cheng Memorial Scholarship” last year to award outstanding full-time students, in memory of his late teacher Dr T Y Cheng.

    The 418 OUHK award recipients of the Self-financing Post-secondary Scholarship Scheme (SPSS) of the Hong Kong Government were invited to join the ceremony as well. The number of awardees this year hit a record high, demonstrating the excellence and distinctive achievement of OUHK students.

    One of the scholarship recipients this year, Miss Leung Long-ying, is awarded with both the “Youth Arch - OUHK Improvement Scholarship (Full-time Face-to-face Programme)” and SPSS Outstanding Performance Scholarship. Leung is now in the third year of the Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Creative Advertising and Media Design programme. This is the first time that Leung is awarded with scholarships in her university studies. To her, the awards represent not only the recognition of her hard work, but motivated her to continue to improve and excel. She feels truly grateful to her donors, the University as well as her teachers for their kind support. She is planning to use the scholarships on reference books, media design software and Japanese language classes, so as to better equip herself to pursue future career and dreams.

    Another scholarship recipient is Mr Leung Kwan-choi who is awarded with the “Wong Man Keung & So Ngok Fai Memorial Scholarship”. He worked in chemical testing after obtaining an associate degree. To further improve his professional knowledge and skills for better work performance, he enrolled in the OUHK’s Bachelor of Science in Applied Science with Honours (Biology and Chemistry) programme and graduated in 2015. In addition to monetary reward, Leung sees the scholarship as an important recognition for his hard work and perseverance in the past few years. He is now studying a Master of Science in Analytical Chemistry programme in another local university to further enhance his knowledge in preparation for better career development.

    Today’s presentation ceremony was held at the Jockey Club Auditorium of the OUHK Jubilee College, and joined by nearly 600 scholarship recipients, their families, friends, along with generous donors.
