138 Higher Diploma and Top-up Undergraduate Degree students received scholarships from the Hong Kong SAR Government under the "Self-Financing Post-Secondary Scholarship Scheme". Mr. Eddie Ng, Secretary for Education, officiated at the Presentation Ceremony held earlier at the Central Government Complex.  A fashion collection “Arouse” designed by Yuen Man-wa, an awardee of “Outstanding Performance Scholarship” and student of Higher Diploma in Fashion Design and Business, was displayed at the event.  The collection incorporates elements appeared in the olden days, including iron gates and iron mail-boxes, to arouse our fond memory of the old Hong Kong.

 

Of the awardees, 35 were presented with the "Outstanding Performance Scholarship" for their outstanding academic achievement, while 11 students received the "Best Progress Award" for their significant academic progress and improvement.  14 students were awarded the “Talent Development Scholarship” for their achievements or talent in non-academic areas. The other 78 students received the “Reaching Out Award” and the “Endeavour Scholarship” respectively.
