KE Project Grant Scheme

Student KE Project Grant Scheme 2012/13

The Student Knowledge Exchange (KE) Project Scheme was introduced in 2011/12 under the KE Funding Exercise. It aims to promote a student culture of contributing to society through applying their knowledge gained at HKU; to nurture the spirit of innovation among students; and to promote the development of engagement projects between students of the University and external organizations. The Scheme is open to all currently enrolled full-time students of the University, including undergraduate, research postgraduate and taught postgraduate students. Each team must have a minimum number of three students, including the team leader.

Each project must have a mentor, who may be an academic or academic-related staff member of the University, to supervise the design and implementation of the project. Support and matching contributions, in kind and/or in cash, from a non-academic partner organization outside the University are required. Proposals are considered on a competitive basis, and the award is normally up to HK$20,000.
