UGC Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme 2024/25 for Local Students
Established by the University Grants Committee (UGC) in 2019, the Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme (the Scheme) provides fellowships for local students to pursue designated taught postgraduate programmes in the UGC-funded universities. More details of the Scheme are available at UGC’s website
Amount of Fellowship
The fellowship students are required to pay a minimum tuition fee of HK$42,100, which is the prevailing rate of the UGC-funded programmes, and the differences will be subsidised by the fellowships subject to a cap of HK$120,000 (for the whole taught postgraduate programme, regardless of the actual study period) for the settlement of the tuition fee only.
Local students who are admitted to the designed taught postgraduate programmes in full-time or part-time study mode for 2024-25 will be invited to submit applications for the Scheme. To avoid double subsidy, students awarded with other government scholarships, including the Continuing Education Fund (except the Extended Non-means-tested Loan Scheme under Student Finance Office), for pursuing the same programme will not be considered.
The award of the fellowships will be based on merits taking into account the students’ academic achievements, professional qualifications, relevant working experience and achievements in other areas as well as the proposals submitted by the students with special attention to their personal statements on how they can contribute to the priority areas of Hong Kong after completing the programme.
Eligible students will be invited by the respective programmes to submit applications. For enquiries, please contact the programme offering unit directly.
