Applicable to Continuing Applicants
(i.e. applicants who have successfully applied for financial assistance in the 2020/21 school year (on or before 1 March 2021) for (i) primary and secondary students or (ii) students at pre-primary, primary and secondary levels or (iii) pre-primary students and the child(ren) will be attending Primary 1 (P1) in the 2021/22 school year)

Continuing applicants can opt to use either the Pre-filled E-Form to complete and submit applications online, or the paper-based pre-printed “Household Application Form for Student Financial Assistance Schemes” (Paper-based Pre-printed Form) to complete and submit applications for the 2021/22 school year.

  • Starting from mid-January 2021
    The Student Finance Office (SFO) has been issuing to continuing applicants in batches letters introducing the E-Form together with the “Option Form for Receiving Paper-based Pre-printed Form” (Option Form).
  • Within two weeks from the date of the letter issued by the SFO
    • If continuing applicants would like to opt to use the Paper-based Pre-printed Form in the 2021/22 school year, they are required to complete the Option Form and submit it to the SFO online or by post / email / fax / SFO’s drop-in boxes or counters or submit it to the attending school of their child(ren). Please refer to the back page of the Option Form for details of the submission methods.
    • If continuing applicants would like to opt to use the Pre-filled E-Form in the 2021/22 school year, they need not submit the Option Form or notify the SFO separately.
  • Starting from late March 2021
    • The SFO has been issuing an Access Code by post in batches to continuing applicants who have not submitted their Option Forms by the deadline (i.e. continuing applicants who opt to use the Pre-filled E-Forms in the 2021/22 school year). Applicants may access their Pre-filled E-Forms by inputting the Access Code and other information in the “Pre-filled E-Form” page of the “SFO E-link – My Applications (Financial Assistance Schemes at Pre-primary, Primary and Secondary Levels)” website, and submit their applications after completing the E-Form and uploading necessary supporting documents.
    • The SFO has been issuing the Paper-based Pre-printed Forms by post in batches to continuing applicants who have submitted their Option Forms by the deadline (i.e. continuing applicants who opt to use the Paper-based Pre-printed Forms in the 2021/22 school year). Applicants may complete and submit the Paper-based Pre-printed Forms together with necessary supporting documents to the SFO by post.
