Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme
Established by the University Grants Committee (UGC) in 2019, the Targeted Taught Postgraduate Fellowships Scheme (the Scheme) provides fellowships for local students to pursue designated taught postgraduate programmes.

Eligibility and Assessment Criteria
  • Local students, both full-time and part-time, admitted to the designated TPg programmes of the University for the 2021-22 Intake are eligible to apply for the Scheme.
  • The fellowships will be awarded to students on a merit basis; assessment criteria include but not limited to the following:
    - Academic achievements;
    - Professional qualifications;
    - Relevant working experience;
    - Achievements in other areas; and
    - Student’s personal statement regarding the commitment and plan on how they can contribute to the priority areas of Hong Kong after completing the programme.
  • To avoid double subsidy, applications from students who are receiving other forms of government scholarships, including the Continuing Education Fund (except the Extended Non-means-tested Loan Scheme under the Student Finance Office) for pursuing the same programme will not be considered.

Duration and Amount of the Fellowship
  • Awardees are required to pay a minimum tuition fee of HK$42,100 for the programme, and the differences will be subsidised by the fellowships subject to a cap of HK$120,000 for each student for the whole taught postgraduate programme, regardless of the actual study period.
  • The fellowships will be used for the settlement of the tuition fee only.
