HONG KONG, Nov. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Asia has joined hands with the Jewellery Institute of Guangzhou Panyu Polytechnic to set up the UBM Asia Scholarship and UBM Asia Grant for the students. This School-Enterprise collaboration aims to recognise students with outstanding academic achievement and to support underprivileged students.

As Asia's leading exhibition organiser, UBM Asia is not only dedicated to developing trade exhibitions and promoting international trade, but also takes an active role in community services, such as charity, donation, rehabilitation, environmental protection and volunteering activities. This is the first time that UBM Asia has worked together with an education organisation. Founded in 2001, the Jewellery Institute has trained many thousands of students into professionals of jewellery design, processing, identification and marketing.

UBM Asia will fund Renminbi 80,000 yuan (US$13,000) annually: 50,000 yuan for the UBM Asia Scholarship and 30,000 yuan for the UBM Asia Grant. To ensure the equity and openness of the selection process, UBM Asia management, teachers and student representatives from the Jewellery Institute will form a vetting committee to assess candidates for the scholarships and grants. Awardees will be announced at the annual Awards Presentation Ceremony.

UBM Asia will also provide a special incentive programme alongside the Scholarship and Grant. Students winning awards in international and national jewellery competitions will be fully funded by UBM Asia to visit the world's largest jewellery fair, the September Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Fair organised by UBM Asia. UBM Asia has a global portfolio of 18 jewellery events in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, Japan, Singapore, Turkey and Germany.

The signing ceremony of the collaboration and the first UBM Asia Scholarship and UBM Asia Grant presentation ceremony will be held on 27 November 2012 at Guangzhou Panyu Polytechnic. Mr. Li Guorong, Vice Director of Bureau of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation of Guangzhou Municipality, representative from Guangzhou Education Bureau, Mr. Meng Yuanbei, Party Secretary of Guangzhou Panyu Polytechnic, Mr. Liang Zhanxiong, Chairman of Guangdong Gold and Silver Jewellery Association, Mr. Pan Qingsong, Chairman of Guangdong Golden Jewellery and Jade Industry Association, and Mr. Yang Huining, Secretary-General of Gold Association of Guang Dong Province will attend the ceremony to witness the signing of the collaboration agreement between UBM Asia, represented by Mr. Wolfram Diener, Senior Vice President of UBM Asia, and Guangzhou Panyu Polytechnic, represented by Mr. Wang Chang, Dean of Jewellery Institute, followed by the presentation of scholarships and grants.
