Introduction

There are two parts in this subsidy: a) subsidy to orientation camps held in off-campus venues; and b) subsidy to orientation camps with freshmen participants who are senior-year entrants.

Part A

Background

Due to the limited availability of bed spaces in the Undergraduate Halls (UGH) in the summer for student societies’ orientation camps, student societies are encouraged to reserve off-campus venues for holding overnight activities for their freshmen.  This financial subsidy is to support student societies in organizing orientation camps in off-campus venues.

Eligibilities for Applications

  • Academic societies registered with the Office of Student Affairs or the Students’ Union
  • Overnight orientation camps held in off-campus venues
  • Only the accommodation cost for each freshmen participant (enrolled in UGC-funded programmes), including senior-year entrants, is included in the calculation of subsidy

Funding Guidelines

$20/night for each freshmen participant enrolled in UGC-funded programmes

Part B

Background

Student societies are strongly encouraged to include freshmen who are senior-year entrants in the orientation camps. Subsidies are available for applications if the orientation camp is expected to include any freshmen who are senior-year entrants.

Eligibilities for Applications

  • Registered student societies with the Office of Student Affairs or the Students’ Union
  • Overnight orientation camps with participating freshmen who are senior-year entrants (enrolled in UGC-funded programmes)

Funding Guidelines

$300/head for each participating freshman who is a senior-year entrant and enrolled in UGC-funded programmes

Application Procedures

  • The completed application forms shall be submitted in person to the Office of Student Affairs 6 weeks prior to the start of the camp or earlier, with the proposal and financial budget of the orientation camp.
  • The reimbursement of subsidy will be arranged upon the receipt of the full set of reporting documents after the completion of orientation camp (submissions shall be done within one month after the camp), together with the original receipts and the list of freshmen participants duly signed.
  • Acknowledgement of the sponsorship from the Hong Kong Baptist University Student Activities Fund shall be included in all publicity materials.
  • The Office of Student Affairs reserves the final rights for applications approval and the final decisions of the amount of subsidy to be allocated.
