Scholarship Reviews 2017
Reported by Henry Wong, WGAHK Vice-Chairman (Scholarship)

We are delighted to announce the winners of this year’s scholarship:

WGAHK 2017 Scholarship Winner: Mr. Corey Wenhong TO
(Mathematics and Economics)

The WGAHK 2017 Scholarship is worth HK$40,000 (fully sponsored by WGAHK). The scholarship is an one-off award to be deducted from the winner’s academic fees for the first year of their studies at The University of Warwick in the academic year 2017/18.

We received overwhelming support for the WGAHK scholarship this year with over 30 applications. Members of the screening panel met on 26th August 2017 to conduct screening of applications for the panel interview. The screening panel consisted of ten members who are Warwick graduates from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds, namely Steven Lo, Henry Wong, Jessica Leung, Loren Tang, Elaine Hung, Vicky Lee, Caroline Wong and Michael Chu.

The scholarship award presentation took place at the annual freshers’ cocktail reception jointly organised by WGAHK, WHKPASS and WHKS on 9th September 2017. Each of the short-listed candidates was invited to the event and was awarded a certified letter issued by WGAHK as well as a HK$500 book voucher as a token of encouragement for their achievements.

Founded in 2001, the WGAHK Scholarship Fund marks its 16th Anniversary in 2017. It is the first Warwick scholarship established by local alumni associations outside the U.K. Taking this opportunity, I would like to express heartfelt gratitude to all donors who have contributed to the establishment of this meaningful scholarship, and to all WGAHK executive members and scholars who have assisted in the successful running of this year’s exercise.

If you would like to support the scholarship with donations, please write to us at, or simply fill in the online donation form on the WGAHK website.
