Applications for Mainland University Study Subsidy Scheme close on September 30
     The Education Bureau (EDB) today (September 19) reminded eligible Hong Kong students who are interested in applying for a subsidy under the Mainland University Study Subsidy Scheme (MUSSS) for the 2022/23 academic year and who will enter designated Mainland institutions in the 2022/23 academic year for the first year of their studies, to submit their applications via the MUSSS Electronic Application Platform (musss.edb.gov.hk) or send the completed application forms by post to the EDB on or before September 30.
     A spokesperson for the EDB said that it was envisaged that the MUSSS would benefit most Hong Kong students pursuing undergraduate studies on the Mainland with different financial needs.
     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.
     Details of the MUSSS are available at the EDB website (www.edb.gov.hk/musss). The EDB is expected to notify individual applicants of the application results by the first quarter of 2023.
