Twenty outstanding HKBU students awarded HSBC scholarships

二十優異生獲頒滙豐獎學金

This year, 20 HKBU undergraduate students were awarded scholarships under the HSBC Scholarship Scheme for their outstanding academic performance and well-rounded development (Please click here to view the list). Among the awardees, Alex Wong (Applied Biology, Year 2) received the HSBC Overseas Scholarship of HK$180,000 as a result of a keen competition and became one of only four awardees in Hong Kong this year.

Alex will study at the University of Alberta in Canada for one semester starting in September. He said, “I am interested in studying immunology, infection and genetics, and wish to learn from the outstanding scholars and fellow students in Canada. I hope to maintain a long-term relationship with them to keep me abreast of international developments in biological science.”

Alex, who is also an athlete competing in many swimming competitions, believes that his good time management is how he impressed the award judges. “I have reached a satisfying balance between my academic performance, sports development, and part-time teaching. The two years at HKBU have been fruitful for me not just because of the number of scholarships I received or my achievements, but also because I have identified the direction I am going to take in my future.” Alex would like to thank the support he received from the HKBU Department of Biology, in particular from Programme Director Dr Danny Ng who provided much guidance and recommendations.

今年,共20位浸大本科生獲得滙豐獎學金,嘉許他們的傑出學術表現和整體發展(按此參閱獲獎名單)。當中,王竣瑋同學(應用生物二年級)在激烈的競爭中表現出色,成為今年四位滙豐海外獎學金計劃的香港得主之一。

竣瑋獲頒港幣180,000元,他將於9月到加拿大University of Alberta進修一個學期。他說:「我有興趣修讀免疫學、傳染病與遺傳學,並希望向當地出色的學者和同學學習。我亦冀望與他們保持長遠的關係,讓我可繼續了解生物科學的國際發展。」

竣瑋同時是出戰多項賽事的游泳運動員,他相信良好的時間管理是吸引評審的原因。「我平衡分配學術、運動和兼職時間。我在浸大取得兩年豐碩的成果,並非只靠獎學金數量或成就來衡量,而在於我找到未來的發展方向。」竣瑋特別感謝生物系的支援,尤其課程主任吳宏杰博士的指導和建議。
