Scholars and fellows could receive up to $300,000 per year.

The Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fund Council called for applicants for its Fellowships and Scholarships for Overseas Studies for 2022-2023.

The maximum value of a fellowship is HK$300,000 per year, tenable for up to three years for a doctoral degree or two years for a master's degree; whilst the maximum value of a scholarship is HK$280,000 per year, tenable for up to three years.

“The fellowships and scholarships aim at encouraging outstanding students to pursue further studies in reputable institutions overseas,” the council said in a statement.

“Successful candidates for the awards are expected to have a strong sense of commitment to Hong Kong and be ready to contribute significantly to the community upon graduation.”

The fellowships are for studies leading to postgraduate degrees either by research or by coursework; the scholarships are for studies leading to undergraduate degrees.

The closing date for all applications is 17 September 2021.

Short-listed applicants will be invited to attend interviews in Hong Kong. The first round of interviews is scheduled for January 2022.
