Giving to Kent

Hong Kong Alumni Scholarship

The Hong Kong Alumni Scholarship was established in 2005 by Eddy Fong and Kennedy Wong in celebration of the University of Kent's 40th anniversary. The University has over 1,100 alumni in Hong Kong, and this community has supported the University since our first students from the region (Sir David Akers-Jones and Professor Eddy Fong) arrived at Kent in 1966.
The Hong Kong Alumni Scholarship supports students from Hong Kong and China to study at Kent, and complements a range of international partnerships which faciliate student exchange and research interactions in the region.

I am very happy that I have graduated from Kent University. I enjoyed it a lot, and the full scholarship I won reduced the financial burden on my family significantly, as the fees and living expenses are a huge amount for international students like me. As a result, I could concentrate on my studies, and could lead my life more freely throughout the three years.

Now I have finished my degree, but I plan to go on to further study and I will be pursuing an MSc in Applied Actuarial Science at Kent.
