Lingnan joins 20th Anniversary celebration of the Jockey Club Scholarships

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships, President Leonard K Cheng joined the 2018 Community Day Race Meeting on 21 April at Sha Tin Racecourse together with over 200 representatives from the Club’s tertiary education and community partners and past Jockey Club Scholars.

 

Since the establishment of the Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships in 1998, the Club has contributed some HK$400 million through its Charities Trust, supporting over 500 Jockey Club Scholars in the eight UGC-funded tertiary institutions, including Lingnan University, and The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.  A recent expansion of the scheme further benefits postgraduate students, students with special educational needs, as well as students in vocational education programmes.  Jockey Club Scholars who receive the Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships are nominated by their institutions and awarded the scholarships for their excellent academic performance, as well as their commitment to society.
