Thanks to generous donations from supporters, the University of Toronto (Hong Kong) Foundation advances the interests of the U of T and Hong Kong by soliciting and administering donations for scholarships.
The University of Toronto (Hong Kong) Foundation Scholarships enable students from Hong Kong who are in financial need to attend U of T and receive a world-class education.
In celebration of the U of T (Hong Kong) Foundation’s 25th anniversary in 2020, U of T President Meric Gertler, Foundation Chair Daisy Ho and Vice-President Advancement David Palmer joined past and present scholars in a fireside chat to discuss the Foundation’s incredible impact on talented Hong Kong students.
