Scheme for Non-means-tested Subsidy on Exchange to "Belt and Road" Regions for Post-secondary Students (Non-means-tested SSEBR)
Starting from the 2019/20 academic year, the Education Bureau (EDB) introduces a new scheme, namely the Scheme for Non-means-tested Subsidy on Exchange to “Belt and Road” Regions for Post-secondary Students (Non-means-tested SSEBR), which provides a non-means-tested subsidy funding for local students who enrolled in eligible programmes to participate in exchange activities held in the Belt and Road Regions.
For more details of the Belt and Road Regions, please visit the website of Hong Kong Trade Development Council:
- HSUHK local students who enrolled in full-time locally-accredited undergraduate programmes at the time of application and throughout the duration of the subsidised exchange activity; and
- HSUHK local students who have ability to complete the outbound exchange activity held in the Belt and Road Regions, which is comprising substantive teaching and learning elements, lasting for at least five days, and organised and/or endorsed by HSUHK.
Successful applicant can be subsidised from HK$1,950 to HK$18,000 for participating in programmes (Subject to Destination and Duration of the exchange activity). Each student will only be eligible for assistance under the Non-means-tested SSEBR once throughout his/her study in programme(s) at the same level of study (i.e. sub-degree or undergraduate) in Hong Kong.
