Stamford Launches Scholarships for Hong Kong’s Inspiring Youths
As Stamford American School Hong Kong begins to put the finishing touches on its campus extension and prepares to open its freshly polished new doors, it celebrates excellence in the wider community through the launch of the “Spirit of Stamford Scholarship Award”. This exciting opportunity is open to Grades 9-11 (S3-S5) students enrolled in Hong Kong schools who embrace Stamford’s values of integrity, courage, innovation and compassion. Receiving such an honor from Stamford, which is part of the prestigious global schools group Cognita, will boost any university application. During a tough economic year, a financial award of partial to full tuition fee coverage is an amazing opportunity for Hong Kong students.
“International education broadens perspectives and nurtures critical skills and attitudes in students, and is an enriching learning experience that can change lives. Scholarships will allow this opportunity to a wider student population without leaving Hong Kong, and alleviate financial stress” shares Karrie Dietz, Head of School.
The Spirit of Stamford scholarships reflects the diversity and talents that Stamford fosters through a broad and balanced curriculum and will celebrate Hong Kong’s amazing athletes, scholars, artists and those who embody compassion through leadership and community contributions. Looking for the best and brightest, Stamford looks forward to receiving diverse applications from the community and fostering the aspirations of the next generation of leaders and innovators.
Ms. Dietz shares “We are excited that our new facilities are opening soon; these new spaces will inspire students for great things. Now is the perfect time to launch our scholarship program to recognize students who also serve as an inspiration to others through their dedication and achievements.”
Stamford parent Mr. Chiang shared the positive changes in his son, Dominic, Grade 8, after enrollment at Stamford, "The teaching method at Stamford is different," shared Mr. Chiang. "Soon after Dominic started school at Stamford, I realized he didn't have a lot of homework, but he was doing even better than before.”
The scholarship program is open to Stamford and non-Stamford students across Hong Kong. Registrations close on February 5th. The application process requires a submitted form, evidence of excellence in the chosen award area, recent reports and a teacher reference. Short-listed candidates will be contacted for an interview, and awards will be announced in March.
