“Passing the Torch” Sponsorship Programme for Students’ Internship in the Mainland

24 Dec 2021

“Passing the Torch” is a meaningful way of giving back by PolyU alumni. To facilitate students’ all-round development and enhance their professional competence, the Alumni Affairs Team of Mainland Development Office and Careers and Placement Section of Student Affairs Office jointly call upon alumni’s support for the newly launched internship sponsorship programme, which provides students valuable opportunities to explore the latest development and career prospect in the Mainland.

Before the pandemic, hundreds of PolyU undergraduate students would participate in a 6-8 weeks’ internship programme in the Mainland each summer. We are now preparing for the internship programme to be rolled out in May to August 2022. The newly launched “Passing the Torch” Sponsorship programme aims to raise donations from our alumni as financial assistance for Students’ Internship in the Mainland.

We look forward to your participation, to carry on this giving tradition.
