Founded in 1981 by Sir Dr David Li, The Friends of Cambridge University in Hong Kong (known as ‘The Friends’) has raised and managed a scholarship fund called The Prince Philip Scholarship and has been supporting numerous promising students from Hong Kong to study at Cambridge University since 1982. The Prince Philip Scholarship grants to each Scholar a non-means tested annual cash award of 4500 pounds and one Hong Kong-London economy class return air ticket. Scholars may, on satisfying a means test, be further granted up to the full costs of tuition and maintenance. The Scholarship normally covers the entire duration of an undergraduate course leading to a BA degree. Subject to good academic performance, the Scholarship may be extended to the 4th year of some courses such as Engineering, Mathematics and certain subjects in Natural Sciences. In addition to the administration of the scholarship, The Friends also organise alumni social activities, mentorship program, secondary school program, charity, prominent alumni profile and more.
