Starting from the Academic Year 2017-18, all eligible participants of the HKUWW Undergraduate Exchange Programmes (including faculty level exchange programmes) will be automatically considered for the Scholarship for Semester Exchange. 


IAO will assign applicants an appropriate scholarship according to their financial needs and academic standing, once they have met the conditions and have been accepted by their host institution.


In all the merit-based funding provided by the Registry offices in support of study abroad, each student is only eligible to receive the value that equals the largest award. Should a student receive more than one award, he/she may be required to return the prior award to the University. This is to ensure that scholarship funds benefit more than a small number of students.
