Wong Chak Chui International Enrichment Scholarship

Background and Aim

With a generous donation by the Wong Chak Chui Charitable Foundation, HKUST School of Business and Management (SBM) launched The Wong Chak Chui International Enrichment Scholarship. The purpose of the Scholarship is to provide financial support for undergraduates’ participation in overseas, including Mainland China and Taiwan, competitions, conferences, community projects, business-related enrichment programs, exchange-out and internship programs. It aims at widening undergraduates’ international perspective, sharpening their analytical skills and helping them put theories into practice. The duration of selected overseas enrichment should not be less than 1 month and not more than 1 year.
