Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme
Established by the University Grants Committee (UGC) in AY2020/21, 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 2022/23 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.

For more details of the Scheme, please refer to Graduate School's website.
