Mainland University Study Subsidy Scheme open for applications
**************************************************************

     ‚ÄčThe Education Bureau (EDB) announced today (August 1) that the Mainland University Study Subsidy Scheme (MUSSS) 2022/23 will be open for applications from eligible Hong Kong students from today until September 30.
      
     A spokesperson for the EDB said that MUSSS would benefit Hong Kong students pursuing undergraduate studies in 191 designated Mainland institutions, including 129 institutions participating in the 2022/23 Scheme for Admission of Hong Kong Students to Mainland Higher Education Institutions.
      
     Eligible students may apply for a means-tested subsidy (only for those students who have passed the means test) or a non-means-tested subsidy under the MUSSS. The subsidy under the MUSSS is granted on a yearly basis. The subsidised period covers the normal duration of the undergraduate programme pursued by the student concerned in the designated Mainland institution.  Eligible applicants may only receive either a means-tested subsidy or a non-means-tested subsidy in the same academic year. The MUSSS is not subject to any quota. It is envisaged that the MUSSS will benefit most Hong Kong students who pursue undergraduate studies on the Mainland and have different financial needs.
      
     Details of the MUSSS are available at the EDB website (www.edb.gov.hk/musss). Eligible students are required to submit their applications via the MUSSS Electronic Application Platform (musss.edb.gov.hk) or send the completed application forms by post to EDB on or before September 30. The EDB is expected to notify individual applicants of the application results by the first quarter of 2023.
