In 2015, HKU became the first university in the world to launch the United Nations’ HeForShe initiative on campus – the global solidarity movement that campaigns for gender equality. Addressing barriers to social mobility in less developed countries, the HeForShe IMPACT Champion Scholarship gives talented students who’ve risen above gender inequality access to a world-class education at HKU.
