On 13 June 2023, the Panel Interview for the “University Fellows Association – Scholarship for Outstanding PolyU Student Athletes 2022/2023” was held at the Alumni Atrium of PolyU. The panel was made up of: Dr Alex Wong Siu-wah, Chairperson of the Management Committee of the Association; Ir Johnny Fan Siu-kay, Member of the Management Committee of the Association; as well as Sr Kenneth Pang Tsan-wing, Member of the Association.

19 student athletes, nominated by the Student Affairs Office of PolyU, met with the panel members in groups. During the interviews, they shared their sports training and personal goals, expressing gratitude to the University for its continued support, especially during the pandemic. They were impressed by PolyU’s care, and were committed to maintaining a long-term relationship with the University. “Here’s how I made mine feel like home,” one of them said. The University Fellows, who were all Outstanding PolyU Alumni Awardees, shared their valuable advice and experiences with the students, encouraging them to work hard to achieve their goals and advance their knowledge for future success. After the interviews, the panel decided to grant the scholarship to all nominated student athletes.

The Association has set up the scholarship to support the development of PolyU sports talents, with a total of 130 students being awarded since its introduction in the academic year of 2016/2017. This initiative aims to recognise students with distinguished sports achievements and motivate them to continue excelling in their athletic pursuits.
