Student Enrichment Activities (SEA) Fund
The purpose of the Student Enrichment Activities Fund (SEA Fund) is to support student groups or individuals to organize or participate, on a voluntary basis, in activities or projects that disseminate at least one of the following learning outcomes:
  • promote campus community-building, multicultural awareness, intercultural effectiveness or civic responsibilities
  • engage students in a process of holistic development that connects their body, mind and spirit, or enriches their global outlook
  • enhance students' development through participation in a competition, program or performance, which at the same time cultivates a vibrant and caring learning community on campus
Application Guidelines
Full-time students, undergraduates or postgraduates, individuals or student societies* are eligible to apply for subsidy from the Fund. The proposed activities or projects must achieve at least one learning outcome stated above. Past activities or projects will not be considered.
* Except SU-affiliated societies, group names should not be used for the project name or the applicant name. The applicant should be the PIC of the project rather than a group.
If you wish to apply for the Fund, you should write a project proposal which includes a plan of income and possible subsidies granted for the project, expenditure plan and the amount of subsidy expected. Before you submit proposals, you should check your proposal with the selection criteria of the Fund. Proposals will be evaluated based on the extent to which they meet the selection criteria. If you would like to explore your ideas with someone before you submit your application proposal, contact the Fund staff at seaf@ust.hk to make an appointment.
Starting from Spring 2018/19, the application for SEA Fund will be jointly conducted with the President's 1-HKUST Student Life Award (1-HKUST Award). Applicants only have to submit ONE application for applying both 1-HKUST Award and SEA Fund.
Proposals will be assessed in the main application exercise in Fall semester. Subject to availability of funding, a second round of application may be offered in Spring. 
Deadline for Application: 12 February 2019 (Tuesday)
Result Announcement: Around 1-1.5 month after the application deadline (via email to project leader)
