Programme Subsidy Scheme for Student Members
(Maths, Science
 and Personal Growth and Social Development)

The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (the HKAGE) operates on an inclusive basis to provide programmes and services for all students, 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 will start to subsidise student members enrolling in selected gifted programmes held by the University Grants Committee (UGC) funded tertiary institutions from 2015 summer onwards. The subsidies will be provided on a competitive basis.

Who are eligible for the programme subsidies?

To receive a subsidy from the HKAGE, student members should meet the following requirements:

  1. Within 120 days after the programme end date, submit:
    • the programme subsidy application form;
    • the school verification form with the school chop;
    • a copy of the programme schedule;
    • an original receipt of the programme cost; and
    • a copy of the relevant course completion certificate

  2. Have not received the HKAGE programme subsidy before within one school year;**
