The scholarship provides funding and support to MSc/PhD students or post-doctoral research in the fields of earth sciences (mineralogy, geology, geochemistry), crystallography, chemistry, physics, material sciences, archaeology, biology and related fields.

It supports innovative projects, with demonstrable novel thinking; they must venture into new areas, test new concepts and methods, and hence contribute to the advancement of gemmological knowledge rather than commercial interests.

Every year, the winners are announced at the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair. They are selected by a scientific committee consisting of internationally renowned researchers from the fields of mineralogy, geology and physics.
