Scholarships have been established to encourage the pursuit of academic excellence and to recognise students' academic achievement. Set up with donations from various organisations, professional bodies and civic-minded individuals, these scholarships are granted on the basis of academic merit, personal qualities and contribution to the community, amongst other factors.
