Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme
The Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS), established by the Research Grants Council (RGC) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, aims to attract the best and brightest students in the world to pursue their research degree programs in a Hong Kong institution.
Funding and Scholarship
The Fellowship provides awardees with a monthly stipend of HK$26,900 (~US$3,449) and a conference and research related travel allowance of HK$13,500 (~US$1,731) per year for a maximum of three years. (The rates are for 2022/23. They are subject to revision from time to time without prior notification.)
For Fellowship awardees who are admitted to a 4-year PhD programme, CityU will provide a monthly studentship at the same level as the RGC Fellowship for their fourth year of study.

HKPFS recipients of CityU School of Law will be favourably considered for a 12-month post-doc position after they have successfully completed their PhD. Selection will be based on the consideration of relevant factors, including academic achievements, availability of a suitable faculty member as supervisor and availability of funding for the post-doc position.
