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 and indicated on the offer letter. The current studentship carries a monthly stipend of HK$18,180 (post-candidacy HK$18,690 for PhD)*.  Studentship recipients are expected to follow the terms and conditions, have satisfactory academic progress, and perform duties assigned by Departments. Part-time students are not eligible for studentships.
