For Students

Programme Subsidy Scheme

The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) operates on an inclusive basis to provide programmes and services for all student members, regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds, learning difficulties or disabilities. To encourage our student members to widen and deepen their learning experiences to meet their diverse needs, the HKAGE has implemented a Programme Subsidy Scheme (the Scheme) from 2015 summer onwards to provide subsidy to student members enrolled in HKAGE’s selected gifted programmes offered by other educational institutions. The Scheme is recently reviewed and is applicable to all selected gifted programmes which begins on or after 1 September 2019. Student members would need to secure a subsidy quota first before enrolling in any programme. They have to meet the requirements of this Scheme to complete the enrolled programme in order to receive the subsidy. The quota of the Scheme operates on a first-come-first-served basis.

Criteria for Selecting Subsidised Programmes

  1. Programmes have at least 10 hours of learning or teaching hours;
  2. Class level must be indicated as one of the class levels from P.4 to S.6;
