HONG KONG – The mainland University Study Subsidy Scheme 2022/23 is now open for applications from Hong Kong students until Sept 30, the Education Bureau announced on Monday.
Covering 191 designated mainland institutions, including 129 institutions participating in the 2022/23 Scheme for Admission of Hong Kong Students to Mainland Higher Education Institutions, the scheme benefits most local students with different financial needs who pursue undergraduate studies in the mainland.
While the scheme is not subject to a quota, applicants may only receive either a means-tested subsidy or a non-means-tested subsidy in the same academic year, according to a government press release.
The subsidy is granted on a yearly basis and the subsidized period covers the normal duration of the undergraduate program pursued by the student concerned in the designated mainland institution, it added.
Eligible students are required to submit their applications via the MUSSS Electronic Application Platform or send the completed application forms by post to EDB on or before Sept 30.
Details of the MUSSS are available on the EDB website.
The EDB expects to notify individual applicants of the application results by the first quarter of 2023.
