Hong Kong Scholarships

Could you support an excellence scholarship for a student from Hong Kong?

Scholarships are vital to the University’s ambition to attract international students with the potential and academic excellence to succeed. Since 2015, generous alumni have supported 11 Hong Kong Outstanding Achievement Scholarships to encourage exceptional students from Hong Kong to study at Birmingham.

The first group of students to receive these scholarships have just graduated. Now we need your help to give other brilliant young people the opportunity to study here in the UK.

“I was really honoured to receive the scholarship and my parents were very proud of me. Having this financial support has helped me a lot. I’m so grateful to the generous alumni who supported my scholarship.”


Scholarships for young people like Erica reward both talent and hard work, helping ensure students of the highest calibre come to Birmingham. Quality educational provision is a key part of our international strategy and helps us retain our position as one of the top 100 global universities.

If three of our generous alumni in Hong Kong donate £1,000, or you are able to make a gift of £3,000, you can provide a scholarship for a student to study here for a full academic year.

Please join your fellow alumni and give £1,000 to support scholarships to help students gain as much from their time at Birmingham as you did. With your help, we can ensure more young people from Hong Kong have the opportunity to follow your lead, to fulfil their potential, and to make their own impact on the world.
