With the aim at recruiting the best and brightest students in the world to pursue PhD study in Hong Kong, the Research Grants Council (RGC) of the Government of Hong Kong SAR has established the “Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme”. In this connection, I am writing to appeal to you for your assistance in recommending outstanding and good research potential candidates to apply for the Scheme through City University of Hong Kong.

The Fellowship provides a monthly stipend of HK$20,000 (~US$2,600), and conference and research-related travel allowance of HK$10,000 (~US$1,300) per year for the awardees for a maximum of three years. In addition, Fellowship recipients at CityU will be awarded the “Chow Yei Ching School of Graduate Studies Entrance Scholarship” (HK$69,096; ~USD8,858),which covers students' tuition and on-campus hostel accommodation fees in their first year of research studies.

The Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme will invite applications for 2016 entry from 1 September – 1 December 2015(by noon Hong Kong Time). The key milestones and application procedures are as follows:

Step 1:
Applicants should first submit an initial application at the RGC's Online Application System (OAS) ( to obtain a RGC reference number (RGC’s deadline: 1 December 2015 [by noon HK time]).

Step 2:
Applicants are then required to submit full application, together with supporting documents, to CityU's Online Admission System, and quote the RGC reference number (CityU’s deadline: 7 December 2015).

Announcement of Fellowship results by the RGC: March 2016

Firm admission offer with regular postgraduate studentship will be given to selected CityU’s nominees, even if they are not awarded the Fellowship by the RGC. The admission offer will be confirmed by the University in January 2016.
