Selection criteria

In the selection process, we would look at both student’s academic and non-academic achievements, as well as their short personal statements outlining their aspirations and how they could benefit from the programme that Boundless offers.

Applicants will be assessed on a holistic basis whereby a number of areas will be taken into account: academic performance, non-academic achievements, interview performance, commitment and enthusiasm exhibited, and the financial background of the applicant (see remarks below).

Screening based on financial background

As a programme that targets students from under-resourced backgrounds, we screen all applications based on the finanical background of the applicant’s household. While exceptions are allowed for those who provide reasonable justifications in their applications, all other applicants must meet ONE of the following five conditions in order to be considered:

  1. Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) (綜援)
  2. Low-income Working Family Allowance (低收入在職家庭津貼)
  3. Half Grant/ Full Grant Textbook Assistance (書簿津貼)
  4. Travel Subsidy (車船津貼)
  5. Family income at or below 75% of the Median Family Income*

*The cut-off line will be set at 75% of the median monthly family income according to the General Household Survey. As of the first quarter of 2021, the cut-off line will be as follows:
