Background:

To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of PRC and 20th Anniversary of Macau SAR, MLC proposes to set up a one-off scholarship series in 2019.

Applicants will submit proposals on how to use the scholarship to which they apply. After reviews by or interviews with panel members, scholarships will be awarded to successful applicants. Successful projects will last for one semester (one year for exchange programme). Such projects will be conducted under the supervision of MLC academic staff. The period of execution of these projects will receive input or suggestion from the panel. Awardees are obligated to submit mid-term reports to the panel and then deliver final presentations to all MLC students at the end of their projects. In order to finish the projects, they are required to get a PASS or SATISFACTORY at the final presentation under the guidance of academic staff.
