Scholarships & Assistantship

 

Most students in the Divinity School of Chung Chi College are supported financially by their own denominations. As for those students who are enrolled in the Chinese University of Hong Kong Degree Programmes, they can seek government loans. (Refer to the Student Financial Office of the HKSAR Government for further information.) MPhil and PhD students can apply for research or teaching assistant positions.

There are also prizes, awards, and grants which are donated to the School by the Church of Christ in China Hong Kong Council, Tsung Tsin Mission Kau Yan Church, the Chinese United Church in Washington, D. C., St. Thomas Church of Sheng Kung Hui, Calvary Church, alumni, and Christians who support the theological education ministry of the School.

Donations benefit students with financial difficulties and also encourage them to excel in the areas of pastoral care, ministry, service, ecumenical cooperation, community life, extracurricular activities, thesis writing, scholarship and spirituality.
