Appendix

Determination of eligibility and the Level of Fee Assistance

The basic calculation of the (AFI) are as follows:

AFI = Gross annual income of the family*÷ (Number of family member (Remark 1) + 1**)

* For the annual income of unmarried child/children residing with the family, 30% of the income is used.
** For single-parent families of 2 to 3 members, the ‘+ 1 factor’ in the formula will become +2.

Details can be referred to the School Year 2020-2021 Guidance Notes on Application for Student Financial Assistance Schemes via http://www.logosacademy.edu.hk/forms-download/#fee_remission_scheme.

The AFI eligibility benchmarks for various levels of assistance are listed in the table below :

Example 1: A family of 4 members includes the applicant, his/her spouse, unmarried child/children residing with the family and a daughter studying in secondary school.

•    Annual income of the applicant $ 140,000
•    Annual income of his/her spouse’s $ 98,000
•    Annual income of unmarried child/children residing with the family $ 70,000
•    Other income (Remark 2) $ 10,000
•    Medical Expenses* incurred by family member (1 member claimed) $21,000
     *(The ceiling of deductible amount for each family member is $21,780 per year in 2020/21)

AFI = ($ 140,000 + $ 98,000 + $ 70,000 × 30% + $ 10,000 – $21,000) ÷ (4 + 1) = $ 49,600.
