The Foundation has provided 6 partial scholarships to Hong Kong students studying at UNSW. The scholarship is valued at $4,000 per annum for one year and given out to students who aspire to contribute to the betterment of society without regard to their own personal gain. The criteria used to select recipients include academic merit, leadership ability, the contribution that the recipient will make to university life in particular the Hong Kong Alumni Association with preference being given to students who are facing financial hardship.
