Financial Assistance Scheme for Post-secondary Students (FASP)
Calculator for Estimating the Amount of Assistance for 2021/22 Academic Year
 
Important Note
As various parameters for calculating the level of financial assistance for 2021/22 (e.g. the levels of academic expenses for various courses/ programmes, the level of maximum loan for 2021/22, etc.) are not yet available, please make reference to the estimated level of financial assistance for 2020/21 above.
 
This programme enables you to obtain a rough estimate of the amount of financial assistance you might obtain from the FASP. The applicants would be informed of the financial assistance entitled under the FASP and the Non-means Tested Loan Scheme for Post-secondary Students (NLSPS), if any, simultaneously in the FASP notification of result. Therefore, this calculator also includes a part which could provide a rough estimate of the NLS offer for FASP applicants.
 
The amount of grant/loan produced by this programme is for your reference only. It is calculated from the income figures, asset values and number of family members you enter below. In your formal application, the information provided by you will be vetted and is subject to amendment if the information is found to be incorrect. In addition, if documentary proofs provided are not substantiated (e.g. self-written statement of income or unexplained prolonged unemployment), the Office may need to make adjustments and apply benchmark figures on the basis of statistical information provided by the relevant government departments, such as the Census and Statistics Department, the Rating and Valuation Department, and the Transport Department etc. to assess the income of and/or net value of the assets held by the family member concerned. The Office may apply projected figures of family income in the assessment if necessary. Your actual entitlement may therefore vary from the figures produced by this programme. We accept no liability for any loss or misrepresentation incurred by its use.
 
Please refer to the Guidance Notes on Application for FASP  for detailed explanation of the factors affecting the assessment of your financial assistance.
 
To know the formula and principles for calculation of financial assistance under FASP, please refer to the calculation mechanism for the FASP.
