European Studies student awarded Hong Kong Scholarship for Excellence

歐洲研究學生獲頒香港卓越獎學金

Lai Sze-fat (European Studies-French Stream, Year 3) was among the first awardees of the "Hong Kong Scholarship for Excellence Scheme" and will start his Master of Science in International Planning at University College London in mid-September.

Sze-fat was excited to receive the scholarship, he said: "Europe has a lot of lessons to offer on urban innovations, like those examples highlighted in the conferences organised by the HKBU-based European Union Academic Programme (EUAP). I would like to inject a stronger dose of international perspectives into my urban studies, with the desire to bring home more urban solutions and innovations." He is grateful to the Department of Government and International Studies for creating this unique programme in European politics and society which exposes its students to the European world view.

The Hong Kong Scholarship for Excellence Scheme was launched by the HKSAR Government in November 2014 with an aim to support outstanding local students to pursue studies in world-renowned universities outside Hong Kong, with a view to grooming a top cadre of talents with global vision, international network and world-class education, thereby contributing to enhancing Hong Kong's competitiveness as Asia's World City in a globalised knowledge economy. This year a total of 25 students were awarded scholarships for postgraduate programmes.

黎思法同學(歐洲研究–法文組三年級)最近獲特區政府頒發首屆「香港卓越獎學金」,將於九月中前赴倫敦大學學院修讀國際城市規劃理碩士課程。

思法對獲頒獎學金感到高興,他說:「歐洲有許多有關『都市創新』的課題值得借鏡,例如由浸大牽頭成立的香港歐洲聯盟學術計劃早前籌辦的一系列會議中提及的例子便很具參考價值,因此,我想在城市規劃研究中加入更多國際觀點,期望可為香港帶來更多城市規劃和創新的方案。」他感謝政治及國際關係學系提供歐洲政治及社會研究課程,讓同學認識歐洲的世界觀。

香港卓越獎學金計劃於2014年11月由香港特區政府設立,目的是資助本地學生到香港境外的世界知名大學進修,從而培養具備環球視野、國際網絡,以及一流教育水平的優秀人才,最終提升香港於全球化知識型經濟環境下作為亞洲國際都會的競爭力,本年度共25名學生獲頒獎學金修讀研究院課程。
