We foster the culture of active lifestyles and the participation in sports, as athletics offers many positive physical, mental and social benefits not only to the individual, but also to broader society.
Why this is important?
HKUST understands the importance of education and the significant impact of holistic, balanced well-being. AEF Athletic Scholarships are offered to students who have proven achievements and potential in regional or international competitions. Sports development is worthy of promotion because it fosters comprehensive education. This in turn will help cultivate the culture of sports on campus.
The AEF Athletic Scholarship is offered to undergraduate students who have achieved recognition in sports competitions at the regional or international level. Selected students are granted HK$20,000 - 30,000 (renewable) towards their tuition, and to date the program has supported 16 students, for a total allocation over HK$800,000.

The principal is the basis of sustained annual income from various investments forming a reliable and viable source of support for many beneficial projects for students.
