University Student Sponsorship Programme

OPCFHK realized the growing opportunities for conservation-related jobs in Hong Kong and China, so more young and energetic talents are always need. To build up local capacity, OPCFHK aims to encourage our next generations to consider a career in conservation by giving them a chance to experience a real-life conservation job in the field through the University Student Sponsorship Programme.

OPCFHK launched this programme in 2005, by funding six students of The University of Hong Kong to two field projects. Seeing the impact to our next generations, OPCFHK has been allocating more and more resources and so far, over 300 students were sponsored by collaborating with The University of Hong Kong, The University of Science and Technology, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Baptist University and The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, and participated in 133 field research projects in more than 10 Asian countries.
