Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme
Taught Postgraduate



Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme (the Fellowships Scheme) is offered by the University Grants Committee (UGC), which provides fellowships for meritorious local students for designated taught postgraduate programmes to pursue further studies so as to benefit the Hong Kong society. More details are available at UGC’s website.



Amount of Fellowship

The fellowship students are required to pay a minimum tuition fee of HK$42,100, which is the prevailing rate of the UGC-funded programmes, and the differences will be subsidised by the fellowships subject to a cap of HK$120,000 (for the whole taught postgraduate programme, regardless of the actual study period) for the settlement of the tuition fee.



In addition to meeting PolyU’s admission requirements and the programme’s entrance requirements (if any), applicants should also fulfil the following criteria:

  1. LOCAL applicants only; and

  2. Not receiving other forms of government scholarship including the Continuing Education Fund (except student financial assistance).
