The University administers a multitude of scholarships and prizes which are awarded primarily on the basis of academic merits at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Most of these scholarships are by faculty/departmental nominations while some are open for applications and on a competitive basis.

Government Grants and Loans
Students admitted to an exclusively UGC-funded full-time curriculum needing financial assistance for their studies at the University are strongly encouraged to apply for the Tertiary Student Finance Scheme (TSFS) which is a means-tested grant and loan scheme administered by the Student Financial Assistance Agency (SFAA) of the Hong Kong SAR Government. To qualify for assistance they must have the right of abode in Hong Kong or have resided in Hong Kong continuously for three years prior to the admission to the University (this does not cover students studying in Hong Kong on a student visa). The application form can be downloaded from the SFAA website at
University Financial Assistance
University funds are in general used to supplement government grants and loans. A limited number of bursaries and loans are available primarily to local students who are in financial need. However, these are of limited value and should not be seen as an alternative to Government support. Applications are invited in early September each year. Emergency assistance is also available anytime during the year. Please visit the CEDARS website on financial assistance at for details.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
