The University Grants Committee (UGC) Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme 2024/25
It is with great pleasure that we share with you that the Master of Arts in Transport Policy and Planning (MATPP) has been included in the UGC Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme 2024/25 with ten approved fellowship places. The Fellowships Scheme is a pilot scheme to provide fellowships for local students pursuing designated taught postgraduate programmes in the eight UGC-funded universities. The main objectives of the scheme are to attract more meritorious local students to pursue further studies in priority areas conducive to the development of Hong Kong, and to encourage universities to establish more innovative and multi-disciplinary programmes that are benefi cial to society.
For eligible applicants to the MATPP programme, you may apply for this Fellowships Scheme via the online form (https://hku.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8CUo7XvKQZ6ntzw). Details of the Scheme and its eligibility can be found at https://www.ugc.edu.hk/eng/ugc/activity/targeted_postgraduate_scheme.html. The Selection Panel will make recommendations of
the award of the fellowships through a vigorous selection and admission process. Awarded fellowship students will then only be required to pay a minimum tuition fee of HK$42,100, which is the prevailing rate of the UGC-funded programmes, and the diff erences will be subsidised by the fellowships subject to a cap of HK$120,000 (for the whole taught postgraduate programme, regardless of the actual study period) for the settlement of the tuition fee only. In the case of the MATPP programme, the composition fee is HKD160,000. It means that an awarded fellowship student pays HKD42,100 and the fellowship covers HKD117,900.
