IEC grant for research into financial education

We also run an annual research grant programme to encourage rigorous research into the area of financial education among fellow financial education practitioners and academics.

Grants up to HKD500,000 are available depending on the scope of the project. A research grant committee consisting of leading local academics and financial education practitioners is formed to assess all applications while the IEC administers and manages the operations.
