Assessment Criteria

  1. The financial situation of the applicants and the family members living together with the applicant will be assessed. In general, the bursaries are offered for applicants with lower "Adjusted Family Income" (AFI), which is calculated by taking the total family income less medical expenses, dividing it by the number of family members "plus 1". Only 30% of the annual incomes of other family members are counted towards the annual family income. For single-parent families of 2 to 3 members, the "plus-1 factor" in the divisor of the AFI formula will be increased to 2. For the 2023/24 academic year, the AFI threshold for bursary assistance is $84,105, and the ceiling of deductible medical expenses for each family member is $22,790.
  2. Eligible applicants are not guaranteed to be offered bursaries.
  3. Assessment will be made and considered by the HKMU Student Financial Awards Committee. The type of assistance offered to individual successful applicants and the number of successful applicants is determined by the applicants' financial circumstances, the funds available in the term concerned, the requirements specified by donors and others factors that the Committee considers necessary.
  4. The assessment of AFI will be conducted in a yearly basis, i.e. applicants are only required to provide the financial information and proof once in a year.
