Innovation and Technology Scholarship 2020 Awardees
Nine outstanding students from the Faculties of Medicine and Science were awarded the Innovation and Technology Scholarship 2020. The awards recognise outstanding Hong Kong undergraduates in science, engineering and medicine-related fields.
Each of the nine recipients received up to HK$150,000 to participate in a series of initiatives such as exchange and research programmes at foreign universities. It is hoped that through these experiences, students can widen their international exposure and develop their passion and commitment towards science and technology and thereby contribute to society.
