Make sure your kid gets the form and make sure you submit it back to your school.
Unfortunately for me, the kid thinks this is his money!
The student grant is non-means-tested. All students who, as at the date of application, study in secondary day-schools, primary schools and special schools (including public sector schools, Direct Subsidy Scheme schools, English Schools Foundation schools and private schools) as well as kindergartens (whether having joined the kindergarten education scheme or not) offering local or non-local curriculums in Hong Kong, are eligible for the grant.https://www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/...0010800408.htmThe spokesman said, "Schools can collect the application forms at the respective Regional Education Offices from tomorrow (January 9), while SCCCs and the VTC can collect the application forms at the EDB's Special Duties Office. After parents have duly completed the application forms, schools have to verify the student status and submit them to the EDB on or before February 14. Applicants are not required to provide other documents at this stage. We will make use of internal information to carry out verification as far as possible. Applicants will only be required to provide other documents when necessary. We expect to start disbursing the subsidy in about six weeks after receiving the applications."
The spokesman added, "As the Chief Executive proposed in the 2019 Policy Address, the provision of the Student Grant will be regularised starting from the 2020/21 school year."
