Financial Subsidy Scheme for Offshore Service-Learning Projects

Service-Learning Requirement is mandatory for all full-time undergraduate students in PolyU. In current practice, almost all credit-bearing service-learning (SL) subjects with offshore projects require participating students to pay certain amount as trip fee to cover part of the travelling cost. Hence, the University has set up this scheme under the administration of the Service-Learning and Leadership Office. Students enrolled on SL subjects with an offshore project and having demonstrable financial difficulties in paying the trip fee may apply for financial subsidies.


All full-time UGC-funded undergraduate students who are:

  • taking the credit-bearing service-learning-subject-related offshore projects. (Students joining pilot projects will only be considered under very special circumstances.)
  • receiving over half of government grant or loan (i.e. the Tertiary Student Finance Scheme – Publicly-funded Programmes (TSFS)); and/or having demonstrable financial difficulties in paying the trip fee, for example: receiving Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA), or family member has a long-term /serious illness.
  • taking the first credit-bearing service-learning subject.
