Light Up Education Fund of the Catholic Church

In a bid to support persons in custody to pursue education and vocational training through community involvement, the Department has set up a subsidy scheme, viz. the ‘Light Up Education Fund of the Catholic Church’ (LUEFCC) for at least three years starting from July 2023 with the donations from the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong. The Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong is targeted to raise donations of a minimum of HK$3,000,000 with HK$1,000,000 per year to subsidize the LUEFCC for providing financial assistance directly by the money donated to needy persons in custody aged 35 or below to pay for education / vocational training course fees, public examination fees and the like.

The Department invites applications for financial assistance three times a year.
