Scholarship for Semester Exchange

Start from Academic Year 2017-18, all eligible participants of HKUWW Undergraduate Exchange Programmes (including faculty level exchange programmes) will be automatically considered for Scholarship for Semester Exchange. 

IAO will assign applicants with an appropriate scholarship according to their financial needs and academic standing, once they have met the conditions and have been accepted by their host institution.

Of all the merit-based funding provided by Registry offices in support of study abroad, each student is only eligible to receive the value that equals to the largest award. Should the student receive more than one award, he/she may be required to return the prior award to the University. This is to ensure that scholarship funds do not only benefit a small number of students.
