Fee Subsidy Scheme

Method of Assessment and Levels of Assistance 2020 – 2021

Students who have had their applications officially approved will receive subsidies worth from half to full amount of the school tuition fees in installments.

  1. The school will use the “Adjusted Family Income”(AFI) mechanism, currently used by the Student Financial Assistance Agency, HKSAR, as the means test to assess the eligibility of an applicant’s family for the student-applicant’s fee remission.

    The AFI is calculated based on the following formula:

    AFI = Gross Total Annual Income of the Family
    Number of Family Members + (1)
  2. Gross Total Annual Income of the Family (Twelve months period preceding the month of your application) includes: the total annual income of the applicant and his/her spouse; 30 % of the total annual income of unmarried child(ren) residing with the family if applicable.

  3. Family Members refer to: the applicant, his/her spouse, unmarried child(ren) of the applicant residing with the family, the dependent parent(s) of the applicant and/or his/her spouse (who are not receiving Comprehensive Social Security Assistance).

  4. In case of single-parent families, the +(1) factor in the denominator of the AFI formula will be increased to +(2).

  5. The AFI eligibility benchmarks for various levels of assistance are set out in the table below. Please note that the AFI is not the average monthly income of a family.
