The funds are donated by the philanthropists. With the unfailing support from our donors, around HK$4 million dollars of bursaries and loans were offered to needy students in 2022/23. Of which around HK$2.26 million dollars were allocated through the PolyU Financial Assistance Scheme.
2022-23 Bursaries and Loan Funds (for reference)
Assistance may be in the form of bursary (助學金) (no repayment needed) and/or interest-free loan (免息貸款). The level of assistance offered to each successful applicant is normally determined by the extent to which the applicant's tuition fee and basic living expenses cannot be covered by government assistance and his/her family/personal resources, as well as the funds available for disbursement.
In 2022/23, 273 out of 287 applications (95%) were successful under the PolyU FA Scheme (Main Round exercise). The bursary amount normally ranged from HK$3,000 to HK$10,000 while the loan amount normally ranged from HK$10,000 to HK$20,000.
An annual centralised application exercise is in use to process application for financial assistance under the PolyU Financial Assistance Scheme. Application period is normally in the commencement of an academic year.
