Financial Calculators

Calculator for Estimating the Amount of Assistance under Financial Assistance Schemes for Primary & Secondary Students

This programme enables you to obtain a rough estimate of the amount of financial assistance you might obtain from the financial assistance schemes for primary and secondary students. Financial assistance schemes for primary and secondary students include the School Textbook Assistance (TA) Scheme, the Student Travel Subsidy (STS) Scheme and the Subsidy Scheme for Internet Access Charges (SIA). The amount of financial assistance computed by this programme is for your reference only.

Please refer to the "Guidance Notes on Household Application for Student Financial Assistance Schemes () for detailed explanation of the factors affecting the assessment of your financial assistance.

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 and applicants cannot provide justifiable reasons and / or detailed calculation of income, 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, to assess the income of the family. The Office may also apply projected figures in determining the annual family income where necessary. Your actual assistance amount may therefore vary from the figures computed by this programme. We accept no liability for loss or misrepresentation incurred by use of this computation programme.
