At the University’s Centenary Ceremony held on August 18, 2011, Premier Mr. Li Keqiang announced that the central government would set up a dedicated fund to support 1,000 HKU teachers and students to visit the Mainland every year.
The Programme was launched successfully, as projected, in 2012. The Fund also aims to provide financial support for the University to extend the collaboration and exchange opportunities with Mainland universities which can lead to activities, such as student exchange programmes, research scholarships, experiential learning opportunities and social service practices for HKU students and staff in the Mainland’s educational sectors.
In principle, the first round application exercise of the funding scheme to support Mainland programmes implemented in the next calendar year is scheduled from September 1 to October 15 of the current year. Teachers or administrative staff can be the project holders and submit applications. For further application procedures and details, please contact your Faculty or email to China Affairs Office (CAO) at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: HKU Students do not need to apply for this scheme individually.
