The Fung Scholars Programme
The Fung Scholars Programme nurtures future world leaders through supporting university students to experience different cultures and environments early in their careers. The recipients of the Fung Scholarships are known as Fung Scholars (or Fung Fellows for the post-graduates) and they are chosen on the basis of their academic excellence and leadership potential.
As of July 2018, the Fung Scholars Programme was established in 31 universities worldwide with more than 5,400 Fung Scholars.
To maintain and energise the network of Fung Scholars and Fung Fellows, the Foundation organises an annual Leadership Conference as well as other activities.
