Outstanding Science students awarded innovation and technology scholarships to broaden their horizons overseas

傑出理科生獲頒創新科技獎學金

Year three Science students Kwok Yan-yi (Chemistry) and Chan Wing-sing (Applied Biology) have been granted scholarships under the Innovation and Technology Scholarship Award 2017 scheme. They will each receive a scholarship of up to HK$150,000 to join overseas attachment programmes or service projects.

Kwok Yan-yi plans to study the Health and Society Study Abroad Programme offered by The King’s College London for one semester starting in January 2018. Yan-yi said the historic College is renowned for its cutting-edge technologies in health science. She looks forward to this overseas experience which will help in her postgraduate studies in related medicinal chemistry fields. Yan-yi would like to express her gratitude to Associate Dean of Science Dr Daniel Kwong for his guidance, which inspired her to pursue her particular research path.

Chan Wing-sing plans to study courses on ecology and conservation offered by the School of Biological Science of The University of Auckland, New Zealand, for one semester starting in February 2018. Wing-sing likes terrestrial ecology, with a particular interest in the development of conservation in New Zealand. He hopes that the forthcoming experience will enable him to compare the ecological research conducted in Hong Kong with that in New Zealand, and help his further studies in terrestrial ecology and conservation. 

The scholarship award gives recognition to outstanding science undergraduates in universities in Hong Kong and provides them with an opportunity to widen their exposure or gain industry experience. Nominated by the presidents and vice-chancellors of their respective universities, the student candidates went through a selection committee to receive the scholarship award.

就讀浸大理學院三年級的郭欣宜同學(化學)和陳永昇同學(應用生物)最近獲創新科技獎學金計劃2017頒發獎學金,每人可獲最多15萬港元資助到海外參與暫讀或服務計劃。

郭欣宜計劃於2018年1月到英國倫敦大學國王學院修讀一個學期的健康與社會課程。她表示,倫敦大學歷史悠久,尤以健康科學領域的頂尖科技著名。她期望認識和體驗海外生活文化,對她本科畢業後進修藥物化學相關的研究課程時有幫助。欣宜特別感謝浸大理學院副院長鄺維正博士的啟發與指導,令她獲益良多。

陳永昇計劃於2018年2月到紐西蘭奧克蘭大學修讀一個學期有關生態及自然保育的課程。永昇喜歡生態研究,特別欣賞紐西蘭在自然保育方面的發展。他期望該課程可讓他比較香港和紐西蘭兩地的生態研究,有助他日後進修有關生態與環境保育的研究課程。

創新科技獎學金旨在嘉許本港傑出的理科本科生,讓他們擴闊視野或在相關行業獲得經驗。候選本科生由大學校長推薦,並需通過遴選委員會的甄選。
