In 2015, HKU became the first university in the world to launch the United Nations’ HeForShe initiative on campus – the global solidarity movement that campaigns for gender equality. Addressing barriers to social mobility in less developed countries, the HeForShe IMPACT Champion Scholarship gives talented students who’ve risen above gender inequality access to a world-class education at HKU.


Applications are open to male and female students with outstanding academic results who have demonstrated a commitment to achieving the HeForShe movement’s objectives. Preference is given to candidates from disadvantaged backgrounds or countries with low national achievements in health, education, income, and gender development and equality. National qualifications are also considered.
