SCHOLARSHIP OVERVIEW

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust proudly awards scholarships to local social sector executives who seek to enhance their leadership skills. In an effort to build capacity of local NGO and social enterprise leaders, the Trust provides scholarships to Executive Education programs at the Chicago Booth Hong Kong Campus.

Starting July 1, 2017, there will be eight scholarships available every 12 months for aspiring leaders at non-profit organizations.

Chicago Booth Executive Education programs empower executives with a global vision, an international network, and world-class education, thereby enabling Hong Kong’s social service sector to respond to increasingly complex social problems in the 21st Century.

“As an individual who has spent her entire career in the non-profit and public sectors, having the opportunity to spend a week immersed in the world of business—being taught by the country’s leading business management professors amidst leaders in the private sector—was invigorating, mind-widening, and enlightening.”
