Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships Presentation Ceremony 2022

The Hong Kong Jockey Club held a presentation ceremony to award scholarships to a new cohort of 42 undergraduate students and six postgraduate students in recognition of their outstanding academic performance and commitment to serving the community. The Club also congratulated 44 recently graduated Scholars as they embark on a new chapter in their lives.

 

At the presentation ceremony, Club Chairman Philip Chen was joined by Guest of Honour Kenneth Fok, Legislative Council Member (Sports, Performing Arts, Culture and Publishing Functional Constituency); Club Stewards Eric Li, Martin Liao, Richard Tang and Rosanna Wong; Chief Executive Officer Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges; Executive Director, Charities and Community, Leong Cheung; Designate Executive Director, Charities and Community, Gabriel Leung; and representatives of participating tertiary institutions to officiate the ceremony.

 

Club Chairman Philip Chen encouraged Jockey Club Scholars to give back to the community and to become caring leaders of good character, showing integrity, honesty and respect for others. “Our society could not function without care and compassion. Thousands of people have reached out to help those in need during the pandemic. That is Hong Kong at its very best. I hope our Scholars will make their own contribution to our home,” said Mr Chen. 

 

Congratulating the graduating Scholars and new recipients, this year’s Guest of Honour Kenneth Fok praised the Club for its long-term commitment to nurturing young people. He urged Scholars to seize every opportunity to contribute to the community. He also encouraged them to develop a global perspective to enhance their competitiveness and pursue their dreams. He called for support for young people’s chosen careers, be it in technology, art, culture or sports, and a platform for them to gain experience beyond the borders of Hong Kong.
