The Government established the $1 billion HKSAR Government Scholarship Fund (the Fund) to recognize outstanding local and non-local students. Each academic year, the Government will distribute a sum of money, funded by the investment income generated from the Fund, to the nine institutions [the eight University Grants Committee-funded institutions and the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA)] offering full-time publicly-funded programmes at degree or above levels. The scholarship is $40,000 per year for local students and $80,000 per year for non-local students. This gesture by the government has been extend to benefit students of full-time publicly-funded sub-degree programmes offered by five institutions (City University of Hong Kong, the Education University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, HKAPA and the Vocational Training Council) . The scholarship award for these sub-degree students is between $20,000 to $30,000 per year for both local and non-local students.
