The “Household Application Form for Student Financial Assistance Schemes” is a family-based application form. Applicants can apply for various student financial assistance for their child(ren) at pre-primary, primary and/or secondary levels by completing one single form. Applicants must be the parent or guardian of the student-applicant under the relevant ordinance.
A student-applicant shall (i) attend a kindergarten under the kindergarten education scheme of the Education Bureau offering local curriculum; or (ii) receive whole-day care services in a child care centre registered with the Social Welfare Department. Please refer to Details of Financial Assistance Schemes to learn more.
The applicant’s family must pass the means test. Families with children aged 0-3 receiving whole-day child care services must also pass the “social needs” assessment when applying for fee remission.
There are "full", “3/4” and "half" levels of assistance under the student financial assistance schemes for students at pre-primary level.
The electronic application form (E-Form) is a timesaving, flexible and convenient way which promotes environmental protection and facilitates applicants to submit application anytime and anywhere online through personal computers or mobile devices (e.g. smart phones). Applicants may also save and retrieve unfinished E-Form for completion later.
