Financial Assistance Scheme for Designated Evening Adult Education Courses

Financial assistance under the Financial Assistance Scheme for Designated Evening Adult Education Courses is provided to adult learners attending evening secondary courses run by the Approved Course Providers in designated centres.  Students having fulfilled the eligibility criteria will be reimbursed a basic subsidy (30% of the tuition fees paid).  In addition, needy students having obtained full or half assistance level in the means test administered by the Student Finance Office (SFO) of the Working Family and Student Financial Assistance Agency and having completed the application procedures will be reimbursed in full (100% of the tuition fees paid) or half (50% of the tuition fees paid) respectively.  Subsidies are provided on a reimbursement basis in two instalments after each school term.  For details, please visit SFO's website at www.wfsfaa.gov.hk/sfo (path: “Financial Assistance Schemes” > “Secondary level and below” > “Financial Assistance Scheme for Designated Evening Adult Education Courses”).
