Tung Sin Education Fund

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 ‘Tung Sin Education Fund’ (TSEF) for two years starting from March 2016 with the start-up donation in the sum of HK$500,000 from Tung Sin Tan (TST). In view of the success of the fund in encouraging the continuing education of persons in custody, the TST agreed to continue funding the TSEF. A total donation of $1,000,000 was received from 2018 to 2021 for carrying out a new scheme. In 2022, TST further donated $800,000 to extend the scheme for providing financial assistance directly by the money donated to needy persons in custody 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.
