The Admission Scholarships are supported by funding of the University or the Colleges.
An award of "Honours at Entrance" is a non-monetary honour to be recorded in the official transcript of the student.

Apart from the University Admission Scholarships, top-up scholarships are also offered by our Colleges and Faculties. There are other different kinds of awards available to students such as services and creativity awards, scholarships for students with special educational needs, scholarships for student exchange and internship, and many others awarded on the basis of academic or non-academic performance.

For the academic year 2015-16, the University as a whole granted over 8,800 scholarships and prizes totaling more than HK$173 million to students of different study disciplines. Students can browse the CUHK Calendar 2016-17 for the list of awards available for reference.
