Transdisciplinary Experiential Learning Fund

Supported by the HKU Gallant Ho Experiential Learning Fund

The Transdisciplinary Experiential Learning Fund enables innovative and immersive experiential learning projects/activities aligned with the Common Core. Students and/or teachers can apply for funding which enables students either individually or in teams to engage with transdisciplinary experiential learning involving real-life challenges beyond the campus. Activities should foster collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking, and should have local and/or global impact. Activities can take place in Hong Kong, in the Mainland, or internationally.

We invite both HKU students, student team, and Common Core teachers & tutors to apply.
