The Building Homes with Heart Scholarship Programme, jointly launched by the SHKP-Kwoks’ Foundation and PolyU, recently held its inaugural award ceremony, where Scholarships were presented to ten PolyU students.


The Scholarship Programme aims to provide support to exceptional PolyU students, with a particular focus on those facing financial challenges, in their pursuit of studies in construction, real estate or engineering-related disciplines.


Prof. Ben Young, PolyU Vice President (Student and Global Affairs) stated that the University is a cradle for cultivating talent for Hong Kong’s construction industry and that PolyU graduates have contributed much to the development of both the industry and the city. He hopes PolyU graduates will continue to help advance the development of building technologies and transform scientific research into practical applications.


The ten recipients are undergraduate and postgraduate students from the Department of Building Environment and Energy Engineering, the Department of Building and Real Estate, and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Each student was awarded a scholarship of up to HK$40,000.
