Ms Carmen Yau, PhD student at PolyU APSS, is selected to receive Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowship for Disabled Students 2018/19 after having attended a selection interview conducted by Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fund Council (the Council). The awards presentation ceremony will be held in March 2019.

The Council administrates both fellowship and scholarship schemes for disabled students. The fellowship is offered to outstanding full-time students with special educational needs and/or mental health needs pursuing UGC-funded research postgraduate studies in Hong Kong, in recognition of their academic excellence, leadership potential, language proficiency and research achievement. There are only 2 awards in this academic year (unfixed proportion for fellowship and scholarship).
