Social Service

The Scholarship was launched to nurture students to combine their professional knowledge and personal compassion to serve the community. To enable and empower our Scholars to apply their well-earned knowledge and skills to serve the community, the Scholarship Program requires each Scholar to be engaged in one substantial service project during their normative period of study. These service projects could either be organized and/or supported by our partner universities; organized and/or offered by the Foundation; or self-initiated and self-organized (prior clearance by the Foundation is recommended) by our Scholars. Some exclusive service opportunities offered by the Foundation include:

"The exclusive service opportunity at Teach4HK has reinforced my passion for change in HK education and allowed me to meet some incredible Scholars who share the same values and visions." - Connie Tang, 2016 PolyU Scholar

Teach4HK’s education policy, STEM education and marketing research projects

Ongoing

Engaging talented university graduates to serve at local underprivileged schools, Teach4HK is working with our Scholars to study how different education policies and the latest STEM curriculum development will impact on the long-term development of schools. Teach4HK has also engaged our Scholars in a marketing project to seek more efficient ways to recruit potential teaching fellows and disseminate its program results to a wider public audience.

Music Children Foundation’s (“MCF”) volunteering system and annual report projects

Completed

With a social mission to empower deprived young children through long-term quality music training, MCF has a vast network of volunteers of diversified skills and expertise offering their help in different capacities. With the inputs and efforts of our Scholars, MCF has established a well-planned and sustainable volunteer system to mobilize their volunteers and better leverage their contribution. Our Scholars have also helped MCF in their annual report project, using stories and visuals to illustrate the impact of their meaningful work enabling the community to learn more about their achievements.
