Prof. Edmond Ko Scholarship for Student Mentoring

Felicia SAMIN, a final-year student in the CEGBM Dual Degree Program, is one of 12 winners of the Professor Edmond Ko Scholarships for Student Mentoring this year.

The scholarship, named after the late Professor Edmond Ko, our beloved former department head and distinguished educator, honors students who contributed significantly to the HKUST community as mentors to other students.

Among Felicia's many mentoring experiences, she was an UG TA in CENG3230 last year, helping to guide CBE students in their mini-projects. Congratulations Felicia!
