    At the 2016/17 Scholarship and Bursary Awards Presentation held yesterday (24 Aug, 2017), The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) presented awards with a total value of approximately HK$6.4 million to 697 students. 414 students were awarded scholarships for their outstanding academic achievements, while 283 students were granted bursaries to help alleviate their financial burden. The ceremony was held at the Jockey Club Auditorium of the OUHK Jockey Club Campus, and joined by over 500 scholarship recipients, families, friends, along with many generous donors.

    In his welcoming address, OUHK Council Chairman Mr Michael Wong Yick-kam expressed his gratitude for the generous support from the community. "We are truly thankful to have received the widespread and longstanding support from the community to enrich our Student Assistance Fund. With your benevolence, we are able to reward outstanding students who are always striving for academic excellence, while allowing many aspiring learners to overcome their own limitations and realize their dreams for education through the provision of financial aids."

    Speaking at the Ceremony, OUHK President Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong encouraged students to keep improving themselves and aim for excellence. "While you are feeling thrilled and proud of yourself, I hope you would remain modest and never cease to try your best. Always remember to give back to society when you can in the future, and help others to achieve their goals, just as your donors have helped you today."

    Prof. Wong added that in the year 2016-17, OUHK has received generous donations of about HK$5.5 million to boost the scholarship fund and setup new scholarships. "On behalf of the University, I would like to extend our sincere thanks to all those who have supported our scholarship scheme, especially the Youth Arch Foundation for renewing its support by donating another $2.5 million towards the 'Youth Arch – OUHK Improvement Scholarship'. This is one of the largest award schemes at the University to acknowledge students who have made remarkable progress in their academic performance."

    A total of 86 awards were granted by the OUHK to full-time and part-time students this year. Seven scholarships were newly established, including "CMA Testing and Certification Scholarship", "Devoni Scholarship", "Elite Partners Scholarship" and "Lu Sin Memorial Scholarship" to recognize outstanding full-time students; and "Hong Kong Shun Lung Yan Chak Foundation Scholarship", "Varengold Partners Scholarship" and "Woo Hon Fai Memorial Scholarship" to reward part-time students with excellent academic results.

    The 667 OUHK award recipients of the Self-financing Post-secondary Scholarship Scheme (SPSS) of the Hong Kong Government were also invited to join the ceremony. The number of awardees this year hit a record high, demonstrating the distinctive achievement of OUHK students in the past year.

    One of the scholarship recipients, Miss Vivian Liu Ming-wai, is awarded with the “Double Technology Scholarship” for her outstanding academic achievement. Vivian is among the first batch of graduates from the full-time Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Testing and Certification programme. This is the first time that she receives a scholarship in university. To her, the award represents not only recognition of her hard work but also motivates her to continue to better herself. She feels truly thankful to her donors and her teachers for their kind support and guidance. She is planning to use the scholarship money on books and to treat her parents to a big meal as a token of appreciation for their support.

    Another scholarship recipient is Miss Rachel Pak Wing-yan who is awarded both the "Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants Scholarship (Undergraduate Programme)"and "Sun Kai Chi Scholarship for Accounting Students". Rachel joined the workforce soon after completing Form 7. For better career prospect and development, she decided to enroll in the OUHK's part-time Bachelor of Business Administration with Honours in Accounting programme. She is now working at a local accounting firm and this is the third time that she is receiving scholarships from the University. She is thrilled to receive the scholarship again and plans to use the scholarship money for further studies to strengthen her competitiveness and performance at work. She is hoping to enroll in a Master's Programme in Corporate Governance shortly. She sincerely hopes that scholarship and bursary donors will continue to support OUHK students and encourage more aspiring learners to pursue further studies.
