International Education Office would like to bring to your attention a very attractive PhD fellowship scheme that the Research Grants Council (RGC) of Hong Kong has established: the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS), The Scheme is aimed at attracting the best and brightest students from around the world to come for PhD studies in Hong Kong. Each Fellowship awardee will be provided with a monthly stipend of HK$26,600* (US$1=HK$7.8) and a conference/research-related travel allowance of up to HK$13,300/year* for a maximum period of three years by the RGC. In addition, the full tuition fee for a non-local Fellowship awardee will be waived by Lingnan for his/her first year of study. For an awardee with a normative study period of four years, the University will offer the same level of Fellowship and conference/research-related travel allowance for his/her fourth year of study. The intention is to make this Scheme prestigious and highly international, hence hopefully attractive to you and your students/graduates.
Applicants may seek admission to our PhD programs in two ways as follows:
- Apply via the HKPFS during the period from 1 September to 1 December 2020 (Hong Kong Time 12:00 noon). Applicants who apply for and do not get the Fellowship can still be considered for the regular PhD places at Lingnan.
- Apply to the University directly from 2 November 2020 to 22 January 2021. Normally, full-time PhD students will be awarded full Postgraduate Studentships. In 2020-21, the monthly stipend is HK$18,090*# before confirmation of candidature and HK$18,440*# after confirmation of candidature.
