GSLS 1000

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
30 May to 19 June 2017

It was the third consecutive year the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) offered scholarship for students from member institutions of USRN to participate in service-learning projects worldwide.

In 2017 summer, 4 students from the University of Haifa, Israel, were selected to participate in the scheme. They joined the Cambodia Solar Power Service-Learning Project offered by Department of Computing of PolyU and served in Cambodia during 30 May-19 June 2017. In the past 3 years, the GSLS has supported 21 students from 6 USRN member universities to do service-learning.
