AFS scholarship scheme starts in 2019-20, above are the pictures of the 2 scholars and their principals.
1. Why should I become an AFS scholarship sponsor?
Help Hong Kong secondary school students who are full of potential, not receiving any government subsidies but could not afford the cost of exchange program, offer them the opportunity to join the life-changing AFS year exchange program!
AFS is a non-profit voluntary organization without government funding, also a charitable institution which is exempt from tax under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance. Therefore, it is very difficult for us to operate our own scholarship scheme if we solely rely on one-off donations and other income.
Only when we have the additional support from 5 sponsors, we could maintain the operation of AFS scholarship scheme.
