Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao University Alliance Fund – Student Interflow Scheme

About the Scheme

The Student Interflow Scheme was launched by the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao University Alliance (GHMUA) with funding support from University Grant Committee (UGC) to provide subsistence for university students in Hong Kong to take part in short-term internship or learning programmes to be carried out in the Greater Bay Area.

  1. You are a LOCAL UNDERGRADUATE student of HKU at the time of application and throughout the duration of the interflow activity;

  2. The interflow activity must be carried out in GREATER BAY AREA and consists of substantive teaching and learning elements; and

  3. The interflow activity should be organized and/or endorsed by HKU Faculty/Department with programme commencement date between September 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024.


*The Greater Bay Area consists of Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen, Huizhou, Zhaoqing, Hong Kong and Macao.
