The Quantitative Finance Alumni Scholarships for Outstanding Student and Overseas Exchange are awards supporting Quantitative Finance students at CUHK Business School. The prestigious scholarships were established in 2010 by a group of generous alumni and other benefactors from the Business School, under the direction of Professor Dennis Fan. The purposes of these scholarships are to provide opportunities for exceptional individuals to pursue their studies in oversea universities and promote excellence and recognition in the program.
The awardees are chosen not only for their outstanding scholarly achievements, but for their character, commitment to others in the program and potential for leadership.
The Quantitative Finance Alumni Scholarships selection committee will be seeking young women and men of outstanding intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service. Candidates for the scholarships are subjected to an extremely rigorous selection process. Shortlisted candidates are given a series of interviews by a selection committee chaired by alumni representatives. At present, one Outstanding Student and two Overseas Exchange scholarships are awarded each year.
