#STUDYABROAD: IS THERE ANY SCHOLARSHIP FOR HONG KONG STUDENTS WHO WISH TO CONTINUE THEIR STUDIES IN THE MAINLAND?
Hong Kong students enjoy the same the fee structure including tuition fee, accommodation fee and medical insurance fee as those for Mainland students, making it more affordable than studying in Hong Kong or overseas. Nevertheless, there are dedicated scholarships for Hong Kong students to ensure that no one is deprived of higher education for financial reasons.
Scholarships for Hong Kong, Macao and Overseas Chinese Students
In 2017, the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Education set up the Scholarship to encourage Hong Kong, Macao and Chinese overseas students to study in the Mainland. Each student may receive up to RMB$ 8,000 each academic year! (Year 2019)
Mainland University Study Subsidy Schemes
The scheme is managed by the Education Bureau of Hong Kong and means-tested by the Student Finance Office of the Working Family and Student Financial Assistance Agency. The full-rate subsidy is HK$ 16,800 each year! (Academic Year 2019/20)
Higher education institutions in the Mainland also offer their own scholarships, grants, fee remission, etc. For details and requirements, please refer to information from individual institutions.
