Be Entrepreneurial! Funding Scheme

untitled-2-01

Great news!!! The maximum funding amount has been increased to HK$20,000! The funding scheme supports short-term student projects that will realise the College’s core values of creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, and social responsibility. All undergraduate students, regardless of discipline and year of study, are welcome to submit application all year round. Project duration is flexible, but usually under a year. The range of project ideas is wonderfully broad: it can be a campaign promoting glass recycling in Hong Kong, an informal investigation into the living conditions of illegal immigrants in Sham Shui Po, production of a novel, local adoption of Bertolt Brecht’s sarcastic play The Threepenny Opera, and so on.
