The Hong Kong Scholarship for Excellence Scheme (HKSES) aims to support local students to pursue studies in world-renowned universities outside Hong Kong with a view to grooming a top cadre of talents with global vision, an international network and world-class education, thereby contributing to enhancing Hong Kong’s competitiveness as Asia’s world city in a globalized knowledge economy.
In 2016, the Education Bureau received 681 applications for the HKSES, and 78 of them were selected to receive the scholarship for the pursuit of undergraduate or postgraduate study in top universities over the world.
We are proud to announce that Mr. Poon Tsun Hong, our Liberal Studies teacher, was one of these seventy-eight awardees honoured with the prestigious title of Hong Kong Scholars.
Mr. Poon is going to study a postgraduate programme Master of Science in Psychology of Education (British Psychological Society) at University of Bristol in the 2016-2017 academic year. We wish him further accomplishment in his postgraduate study in the UK, and look forward to his contribution to the education sector of Hong Kong after his graduation.
