HKBU graduates awarded Hong Kong Scholarships for Excellence

浸大學生獲頒香港卓越獎學金

Three fresh HKBU graduates, Carson Poon (Geography and Liberal Studies Teaching), Chloe Lam (Music) and Leung King-heng (Music), have been selected as awardees of the Hong Kong Scholarship for Excellence Scheme (HKSES).  Honoured with the title of Hong Kong Scholars, they will pursue postgraduate studies overseas.  
  
Carson says he is privileged to be awarded the scholarship and will study for a Master of Science in Psychology of Education degree at the University of Bristol in the UK. He says that in future, he wishes to make an impact on improving teaching and learning strategies for students with special education needs in Hong Kong. He also wants to put into practice his belief that “a teacher is like a candle -- it consumes itself while lighting the way for others”, and thereby acting as guides in helping youngsters find their future path.    
 
Chloe will study for a Master of Music in Historical Performance degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in the UK. She said that the programme will enable her to engage in cultural exchanges and associations with world-renowned musicians and ensembles. In addition, the programme can guide her while she investigates and interprets historical evidence found both in treatises on early musical performances and in the mainstream repertory.
 
Meanwhile, King-heng will study for a Master of Music in Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games at the Berklee College of Music, Valencia Campus .
 
Offered by the HKSAR Government, the HKSES supports local students who seek to pursue studies in world-renowned universities outside Hong Kong. The goal is to groom a top cadre of talents with global vision, an international network and world-class education, thereby contributing to enhancing Hong Kong's competitiveness as Asia's world city in a globalised knowledge economy. Apart from academic achievements, the selection of awardees is based on key consideration of the non-academic attributes of an applicant. These include leadership qualities and potential, as well as his or her commitment and contribution to Hong Kong.

浸大三位畢業生潘焌匡(地理及通識教育)、林頌騫(音樂)和梁景行(音樂)獲頒香港卓越獎學金,並冠以「香港尖子」的榮譽,遠赴海外升讀研究院課程。
 
焌匡對獲頒獎學金感到榮幸,期望修讀英國布里斯托大學教育心理學碩士課程後,可以將所學的回饋香港,提升有關特殊學習需要的教學策略,並實踐他的信念「教師就如爉燭,燃點自己以照亮他人」,引領年青一代走向多姿多彩的未來。
 
頌騫則選擇到英國市政廳音樂及戲劇學院修讀音樂歷史表演碩士課程。她表示,香港沒有相關的課程,而且海外進修可以讓她進行多元文化的交流、開拓國際音樂界的脈絡,還可以學懂詮釋、調查有關表演論文及主流曲目的論據。

景行則會遠赴伯克利音樂學院(華倫西瓦校園)修讀電影、電視及電子遊戲配樂音樂碩士課程。
 
香港卓越獎學金計劃由香港特區政府籌劃,旨在資助本地學生升讀香港以外的知名大學,以培養具備環球視野、國際網絡,以及一流教育水平的優秀人才,從而提升香港在全球化知識型經濟環境下作為亞洲國際都會的競爭力。除學業成績外,申請人的非學術特質,例如領導才能和潛質,以及對香港的承擔和貢獻,也是甄選時的主要考慮因素。
