Lawrence Ho Scholarships

Established in 2009, ‘The Lawrence Ho Scholarship and Research Fund’ will be used to provide scholarships and work placements; internships and travel bursaries; student prizes; and course development and research funding.

Undergraduate/Postgraduate Scholarships

A limited number of concurrent scholarships will be awarded to students from China, Macau and Hong Kong, who wish to study full-time undergraduate or postgraduate level programmes at Edinburgh Napier University campuses in the UK or at partner institutions in Hong Kong. These scholarships will also be made available for students who wish to study in China, Hong Kong or Macau for a semester or for a full year of their programme.

Preference will be given to students applying to study in one of the following disciplines:

  • Marketing Management
  • International Tourism Management 
  • International Festival & Event Management
  • International Hospitality Management
  • Interactive Media Design
  • Environmental Development and Research

Successful applicants will be awarded up to £10,000 per annum, or the cost of their course fees, whichever is the lowest, for the duration of their course. Undergraduates entering first year will be eligible to apply for a scholarship from second year, based on their academic achievements in first year. Lawrence Ho will review the applications, and in discussion with Edinburgh Napier University, will select the recipients. 

Where appropriate, scholarships will include a placement in Hong Kong or Macau, with Melco International Development Ltd or its associated companies (“Melco Group”).
