The Zubin Foundation Scholarships for Tertiary Education

Fewer ethnic minority youth pursue higher education than the general population in Hong Kong (28.1% vs 46.6%)*. Without financial assistance, many of our ethnic minority students have trouble paying for their degree and most get trapped in social and cultural barriers, pulling them into a cycle of intergenerational poverty.


Our scholarships aim to fill this gap by supporting deserving ethnic minority students to study further. In the past 2 years, since its inception in 2020, we have offered 44 scholarships under 3 categories.

For 2022 Cohort, we have offered 40 Scholarships for Sub-Degree & Undergraduate Courses.
