We are delighted to inform you that the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong is launching the Ninth Round of the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (the “Scheme”).  The Scheme aims to attract top international students to pursue PhD studies in Hong Kong’s world-class research universities.  The fellowship provides a monthly stipend of HK$20,000 (approx. US$2,600) and a conference and research-related travel allowance of HK$10,000 (approx. US$1,300) per year for a period of three years.  More than 230 fellowships will be awarded for PhD studies commencing in the 2018/19 academic year.  The deadline for initial application is 1 December 2017.

The poster and leaflet of the Scheme are attached for your information, and we should be much grateful if you would grant assistance in circulating them to interested parties of your university / institution.

Electronic versions of the above-mentioned publicity materials are available online for download:
