As part of the $19.1 billion relief measures announced by the Financial Secretary in August 2019, a one-off student grant of $2,500 for each secondary day-school, primary school and kindergarten student was provided in the 2019/20 school year to alleviate parents’ financial burden in defraying education expenses. The provision was approved by the Finance Committee of the Legislative Council on 6 December 2019. The Chief Executive proposed in the 2019 Policy Address to regularise the provision of the student grant starting from the 2020/21 school year.
For the “Student Grant” Application Forms, there are Form A and Form B. Form A is a blank form (applicable to students who are newly admitted to a school or have transferred to another school in this school year). Form B is pre-printed with the basic information of the student as well as that of the applicant (applicable to students who have been promoted to the next class level in the same school, can be collected from school only). Therefore, parents should submit the forms to the kindergarten on or before 4th October, 2021 following the relative instruction, then we will submit it to the EDB.
The “Student Grant” is administrated by the Special Duties Office, EDB. Please contact the hotline of SDO, EDB at 3850 2000 for enquiries, or the kindergarten at 2702 7188 / 2702 7838.
