Government Subsidy Schemes & TWC Student Funds

Students are encouraged to organise and participate in various student activities and apply for fundings to support your passion and involvement in activities.
 


 
Government Subsidy Schemes for Exchange Activities
 
Established in 2015, the Subsidy on Exchange for Post-secondary Students (SSE) is offered by Education Bureau (EDB) of the Hog Kong Special Administrative Region to support local students, with financial need, to participate in outbound exchange programmes.
 
Starting from July 2019, EDB further offers two non-means-tested schemes for subsidy on exchange, namely, Non-means-tested Mainland Experience Scheme for Post-Secondary Students (Non-means-tested MES) and Scheme for Non-means-tested Subsidy on Exchange to “Belt and Road” Regions for Post-Secondary Students (Non-means-tested SSEBR) to encourage more post-secondary students in Hong Kong to pursue exchange activities in the Mainland and B&R regions.
