Education aid applications open

Applications are being invited from self-financing post-secondary institutions for funding support for the 2021-22 academic year to develop and enhance programmes that meet market needs but require high startup costs, the Education Bureau announced today.   Launched in December 2020, the Enhancement & Start-up Grant Scheme for Self-financing Post-secondary Education (ESGS) provides financial support for eligible self-financing post-secondary education institutions to develop programmes that meet market needs.   The scheme also alleviates the institutions' need to fully recover the set-up costs from tuition fees, thereby relieving the financial burden on students. Funding for a proposal will generally be capped at $42 million.   In the 2020-21 round of applications, six out of 22 applications were approved with a total grant of about $137 million, covering a wide range of sectors including health, financial services, art and innovative technology as well as maritime studies.   The Education Bureau will closely liaise with the relevant institutions to make best use of the resources of the scheme and launch the programmes as soon as practicable.   As regards the 2021-22 round of the ESGS, it will close for applications on April 20, 2022. Independent non-profit-making education institutions offering full-time locally accredited local self-financing sub-degree or undergraduate programmes are eligible to apply.   The Committee on Self-financing Post-secondary Education will advise on the merits of the proposals received under the scheme and make recommendations to the Secretary for Education.   Click here for details.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
