2011 Croucher Scholars and Croucher Fellows

Croucher’s HK$20 million Scholarships for Hong Kong Students

The Croucher Foundation of Hong Kong announced this year’s awards of about HK$20 million to 9 postdoctoral scientists and another 14 doctoral students to enable them to pursue their research studies abroad.

The 23 recipients of these Croucher awards include 9 who are currently studying in universities in Hong Kong, and 14 Hong Kong students who are already doing their university degrees in the United Kingdom; United States; Sweden; Canada and France. They were selected from 95 applicants after a competitive review process conducted by 18 senior local and overseas scientists from various scientific disciplines.

The Croucher scholarships are full scholarships, which mean they cover tuition fees, maintenance allowance, airfare and allowances for attending international conferences. The awards are however only restricted to doctoral and postdoctoral levels of studies in natural science, technology and medicine. The maximum for a doctoral scholarship may be as high as HK$1.45 million each, while that of a postdoctoral fellowship for two years may be up to HK$820,000.
