HK Prize is one of the premier science and technology awards, providing both monetary prizes to young researchers and scholarships for students. Furthermore, its benefits extend far beyond this with access to Hong Kong’s premier research facilities as a possible reward. Students looking to make an impactful statement through art can apply by being nominated by their teachers before the submission deadline; work will then be reviewed and scored by an independent panel of judges who will select those deserving scientists with individual Judge’s Prize awards of HK$8,000 as an individual prize as well as school grants of up to 20k each!
The HK Prize is a non-governmental award that recognizes scientific studies with global impact. Its independent judging process allows it to recognize researchers without bias. Finalists include those using technology to aid homeless people and an artist who reinterpreted human rights concepts into fine art; others have even put their lives on the line by founding organizations for sheltering homeless individuals or developing liquid biopsy processes to detect cancer earlier.
An expert panel composed of experts in scientific research and law will judge for the Hong Kong Prize, an award designed to recognize excellence in research conducted by young Fellows of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine. Applications from all specialties of medicine are welcome during nomination period; research must have been published in an peer-reviewed journal prior to nomination.
HK Prize will host an awards ceremony that is open to the public, where its winner will receive both a trophy and cash award, in addition to being invited to join a mentorship programme that helps develop professionally and personally. They may even receive scholarship funding towards university studies – making this effort well worth while! The HK Prize encourages more international students to come and enjoy Hong Kong’s high-quality education system as well as contribute positively to local economies; hence it is worth making every effort towards competing for such an illustrious award.
