The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) held an appreciation reception on 14 April 2023 at the Global Student Hub on campus to thank donors who have set up scholarships and/ or bursaries for students in the academic year 2022/23.
During the year, we are grateful to have received from over 270 donors a total of HK$43 million in the forms of scholarships /bursaries, financial assistance and subsidies for student activities, benefiting over 2,200 PolyU students. The event allowed the students to express their gratitude to donors in person.
PolyU President Prof. Jing-Guang Teng and Chairman of PolyU Foundation Dr Sunny Chai, expressed their deepest appreciation to all donors for their continued support and guidance as PolyU works to create a favourable environment for educating the young generation. They also presented certificates of appreciation to donors who have supported the University’s scholarship/bursary scheme for over 15 years.
Two talented scholarship awardees performed violin and yangqin recitals to express their heartfelt gratitude to the donors, which spiced up the event. Representatives from two donors, Croucher Foundation and Hong Kong Woollen and Synthetic Knitting Manufacturers’ Association, that have been supporting the University’s scholarship/ bursary scheme for over four decades, shared their beliefs and aspirations to support education and PolyU.
