CityU Financial Assistance Scheme




Supplementing the Government Financial Assistance Scheme, the CityU Financial Assistance Scheme offers bursaries and / or interest-free loans to assist local full-time UGC-funded students* who face financial hardship. These awards are donated by private organizations and individuals and are allocated primarily on the basis of financial need. In some circumstances, the students' field of studies and academic performance may also be considered as governed by regulations. Needy students should submit the completed application forms accordingly.

Each year, different rounds of applications may be invited, subject to the availability of bursary / loan fund.  Needy students are encouraged to make prior appointment to meet officers of Student Finance Team at Student Development Services for financial advice.


(* Please note that the available bursaries / loans are mainly to assist local full-time associate and undergraduate students studying government-funded programmes.)
