“I feel grateful for having such organisations willing to serve kids in need"

- workshop participant

Hong Kong Scholars exists to increase the number of underprivileged young people at university. We do this by recruiting and training PhD researchers who lead university-style learning experiences to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition of school pupils.

Following initial interest in the AccessEd programme model, we co-hosted a workshop with Ednovators, advocators for education innovation in Hong Kong. With over 20 participants representing schools, universities, government bureaus, and education charities, we shared and prioritized the diverse educational needs of Hong Kong’s underprivileged young people.

The programme was launched in 2018 in partnership with BEI Capital and is led by HK philanthropist Mr Collin Lau.
