Research Studentships

The studentship is a scholarship to support full-time research students financially.  Applicants of research postgraduate programmes are not required to apply for studentships because studentship is awarded on the basis of academic merit. Offering of studentships is subject to academic departments' decision. The current studentship carries a monthly stipend of HK$17,820 (post-candidacy HK$18,320 for PhD)*.  Studentship recipients are expected to follow the terms and condition, have satisfactory academic progress, and perform duties assigned by Departments. Part-time students are not eligible for studentships.

*Stipend rate in 2020/2021 academic year.  The rate is subject to regular review.
