Service-Learning Scholarship Scheme 2.0 (2019/20)


The Service-Learning Scholarship Scheme was established in 2013 to recognise meritorious students displaying outstanding performance in service-learning (SL) subjects, and to encourage them to continue their involvement in community service. We are happy to announce that the Scheme has now entered its next phase, Service-Learning Scholarship Scheme 2.0. This new phase will offer an even better platform for students to develop their leadership and community engagement. The scheme is now open for applications.


60 SL scholarships valued at HK$8,000 each will be awarded.
