High-flyers awarded entry scholarships
This year, more than 70 non-local students from 15 countries and regions were honoured with entry scholarships in recognition of their academic merit or outstanding non-academic achievements. President Prof. Jin-Guang Teng encouraged scholarship recipients to develop global perspectives and gain international exposure through the many opportunities in academic exchanges, overseas internships, international competitions and offshore programmes. Through these learning experiences, students will learn to respect cultural diversity, which is one of the important keys to success in today’s world.
