About Shell/ Island JC Scholarship for the Disabled

Shell/ Island JC Scholarship for the Disabled (the Scholarship) was established in 1981, the International Year of Disabled Persons. Since its inception, the Scholarship has been highly popular among schools, students and parents.

Each year, 10 outstanding students are selected for the Outstanding Disabled Student Award. In 1993, the Best Progress Award was established to further motivate disabled students to achieve improvements. The Best Integrated Student Award was set up in 2001 to encourage disabled students who are studying in ordinary schools. In recognition of students who demonstrate notable effort in helping disabled students integrate into school life and significantly foster integrated learning experience in schools, the Caring Integrated Student Award has been established in 2011 to further advocate integrated education. In 2017, Diversified Potential Development Project was brought out to offer encouragement to the students studying in special schools to show recognition to their efforts and to encourage them to further pursue their visions on diversified ability development.
