Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) arranged appreciation meetings via Zoom web-conferencing to thank donors who have set up scholarships and/ or bursaries for students in the academic year 2020/21.
In 2020/21, PolyU received over HK$14.2 million from around 603 donors, in the forms of scholarships and bursaries, benefiting over 1,186 students. Scholarship and bursary student recipients extended their heartfelt gratitude to donors during the meetings. This precious gift encourages them to strive for excellence and provide opportunities to fully develop their own abilities.
Certificates of appreciation were presented to donors who have supported the University’s scholarship/bursary scheme for over 15 years.
7 student awardees of the “Dr Ng Tat-lun Memorial Scholarship” joined the Zoom meeting with Ms Irene Ng, daughter of the late Ir Dr Ng Tat-lun, to express their appreciation. Ms Ng thanked PolyU for its enthusiasm for education and has been cultivating many outstanding talents for different industries. She also congratulated the awardees and encouraged them to face the current challenges with gratitude and hope.
