University of Liverpool Graduate Association (Hong Kong)

Scholarships Fund

 
 
  (1)  Preamble  
 

 
         
The Scholarships Fund (referred as the Fund) has been set up in 1997 under the auspices of the University of Liverpool Graduate Association (Hong Kong) (referred as the Graduate Association) with the generous donation from a benefactor.

Based on the recommendation by the Award Committee, the Trustees will have the final decision on the number of awards and the level of individual funding in any year. The Trustees may decide not to award any scholarship without giving any reason.
