The Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPF) was established by the Hong Kong Research Grants Council (RGC) in 2009. The HKPF aims at attracting the best and brightest students across the world to pursue their research degree programmes in Hong Kong. 250 PhD Fellowships will be awarded to all institutions in each academic year. For the 2019-20 exercise, application starts on September 1, 2018 (noon).
To discourage plagiarism, the RGC requests institutions to conduct plagiarism checking on all nominated applications before submitting their nominations to the RGC. Applicants should make sure that their application materials do not contain any plagiarised materials, in particular the research proposal & past research experience and vision statements which are expected to be an original piece of work written by the applicant.
Eligibility New applicants to full-time PhD programmes in government-funded institutions in Hong Kong, irrespective of their country of origin and ethnic background, are eligible to apply. Applicants should demonstrate outstanding academic performance, research ability/potential, communication and interpersonal skills, and leadership abilities.
The Fellowships The HKPF provides each awardee with a monthly scholarship of HK$25,100* and a conference and research related travel allowance of HK$12,600 per year for a period up to three years. For HKPF awardees who are admitted to a 4-year PhD programme in 2019-20, the University will provide a monthly scholarship and travel allowance at the same level as the HKPF for their fourth year of study.
