The Fellowship provides a monthly stipend of HK$20,000 (approximately US$2,600) and a conference and research-related travel allowance of HK$10,000 (approximately US$1,300) per year for a maximum period of three years.
135 PhD Fellowships will be awarded for the academic year.
While the academic excellence is of prime consideration, the Selection Panels will take into account, but is not limited to, the four yardsticks below for the selection of candidates:
Each applicant may choose up to two programmes in one or two institutions for PhD study when applying for the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship.
Application should be made through the On-line Application System (OAS).
The Hong Kong PhD Fellowship application is also regarded as a formal application for admission to the PhD programme(s) offered by the institution(s) concerned.
Applicants are therefore required to fully comply with the admission requirements of their selected institutions and programmes except the application deadline, which should strictly follow the stipulated deadline of the Fellowship scheme.
