Message of Condolence

HRH the Duke of Edinburgh

It is with the greatest of sadness that the Managers of the Prince Philip Scholarship learned of the passing of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh on 9 April 2021. The Prince Philip Scholarship was founded in 1981 in honour of His Royal Highness, the then Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, to support talented students from Hong Kong to study for an undergraduate degree at Cambridge. Since the founding of the Prince Philip Scholarship, over 200 students from Hong Kong have met its standards of excellence and completed their studies with the assistance of The Friends of Cambridge University in Hong Kong, the sponsoring body of the Scholarship. On behalf of all the students who proudly earned a Prince Philip Scholarship over the past 40 years, the Managers extend their deepest sympathies to Her Majesty and all the members of the Royal Family on their profound loss.

Experience the Exhilaration of an Extraordinary Education

From Our Previous Scholars...
  • None of this would have been possible without the generous support of The Friends and their benefactors, to which I am greatly indebted.

  • Coming from a modest background, I was supported by the Prince Philip Scholarship to read Social and Political Sciences at Trinity College, Cambridge.  This experience has an immense impact on my career, learning process, and attitude.  I am forever grateful for this opportunity.
