Financial Assistance Scheme
The FAS is accessible to students of ESF Schools and Private Independent Schools (PIS) who have encountered sudden and unexpected changes of circumstances within the last 12 months. For Discovery College families, the funding is provided through the College’s Scholarship Fund. Financial assistance is not normally granted in the first year of admission. The scheme is intended to ease parent’s financial difficulties regarding school fees and will make no reference to the academic achievement that the student has to attain.
Effective June 2013, the annual Non-refundable Building Levy (NBL) will be included in the means tests as part of compulsory school fees. For further information, please visit the ESF website http://www.esf.edu.hk/esf-fas under Home > Student Support > ESF Financial Assistance Scheme.
