For the Academy Grant Scheme, it is launched to support underprivileged students. We do not want this group of members be disadvantaged from joining the programmes offered by the Academy because of the costs incurred. Students who can provide the following documents will receive the Academy grant if they successfully admit to the programmes or activities offered by the Academy, which is equivalent to a full programme fee waiver.  
•    For members receiving FULL GRANT financial assistance from WFSFAA Student Finance Office
•    For members receiving Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSS) from Social Welfare Department 

*Please note the deadline for scholarship application will be on March 15, 2021 (HKT) while grant application will be on April 20, 2021 (HKT).
