There are four types of financial assistance in SPKC available to students:
學生可就個範疇提出申請:

  1. School Fee Remission 學費減免
    With reference to the Student Finance Office, the school adopted the following means test to assess the eligibility of a family for student financial assistance and its assistance level. Based on the following formula, the “Adjusted Family Income” (AFI) mechanism will be used:

    參考「學生資助處」的資格評估方法後,本校會採用「調整後家庭收入」機制進行入息審查,以評定申請人的資助資格及幅度。「調整後家庭收入」機制所採用的算式如下:
    AFI = Gross annual income of the family 
     Number of family members + (1)
    「調整後家庭收入」 = 家庭全年總收入    
     家庭成員人數 + (1)

    Gross annual income of the family includes the annual income of the applicant and his / her spouse; 30% of the annual income of the unmarried child / children residing with the family if applicable; and the contribution from relatives / friends if applicable. (Mandatory Provident Fund or Provident Fund contribution by the employee is not included.)
    The members of a family normally refer to the applicant, his / her spouse, unmarried child / children residing with the family and the dependent parent(s) who are supported by the applicant and / or his / her spouse.
    For single-parent families of 2 to 3 members, the ‘plus 1 factor’ in the divisor of the AFI formula will be increased to 2.
    家庭全年總收入包括申請人及其配偶的全年收入,與申請人家庭同住的未婚子女的全年收入的30% (如適用),以及親友給予的津助 (如適用)。(計算時不包括僱員強積金及公積金供款)
    家庭成員通常是指申請人、申請人的配偶、與申請人家庭同住的未婚子女,以及由申請人及/或其配偶供養的父母。
    註:二至三人的單親家庭,公式中除數的 (+1) 將會增加至 (+2)。
