Applications for Mainland University Study Subsidy Scheme close on September 2
     The Education Bureau (EDB) today (August 19) reminded students who are interested in applying for subsidy under the Mainland University Study Subsidy Scheme (MUSSS) for the 2019/20 academic year and who will enter designated Mainland institutions in the 2019/20 academic year for the first year of their studies to submit their completed application forms together with supporting documents to the EDB by post on or before September 2.
     Eligible students may apply for the "means-tested subsidy" or "non-means-tested subsidy" under the MUSSS. The subsidy under MUSSS is granted on a yearly basis. The subsidised period would be the normal duration of the undergraduate programmes pursued by the student concerned in the designated Mainland institution. Eligible applicants can only receive either the "means-tested subsidy" or "non-means-tested subsidy" in an academic year.
     For the 2019/20 academic year, the amount of full-rate subsidy and half-rate subsidy under the "means-tested subsidy" are HK$16,800 and HK$8,400 respectively. The amount of the "non-means-tested subsidy" is HK$5,600. There are 181 designated Mainland institutions, including 112 institutions participating in the 2019/20 Scheme for Admission of Hong Kong students to Mainland Higher Education Institutions. The MUSSS is not subject to any quota.
     Detailed information on the MUSSS, including the 181 designated Mainland institutions, application forms and guidance notes, are available at the EDB website (www.edb.gov.hk/musss19). The EDB will inform individual applicants of the application result by the first quarter of 2020.
