In 2014, HKNZBA established a scholarship with the support of the Hong Kong Economic Trade Office for students approved for an exchange to Hong Kong. This is an award with a monetary value of up to $3000. The first recipient of this award was Jonathan Kuan, a Bachelor of Commerce student at the University of Auckland. Jonathan was on exchange at the University of Hong Kong in the second semester of 2014. Here are some blog posts from his stay:
Victoria Peak was the first place visited upon arrival in Hong Kong. Known for having one of the greatest night views in the world, I was far from disappointed by its magnificence.
A few exchange students and I walked back to the University of Hong Kong from there, taking forty minutes in total. The journey was marvellous, as we could see many different views, and it was a great exercise to gear ourselves up to welcome any challenges during our stay in Hong Kong.
The stunning night view of the city seems to promise a wonderful life I would have in the following months here.

Thank you to all those who participated in our silent auction!
