The Fellowship awarded by RGC provides a monthly stipend of HK$27,100 (approximately US$3,474) and a conference and research-related travel allowance of HK$13,600 (approximately US$1,744) per year for the awardees for a maximum period of three years.

CityU will provide a monthly studentship at the same level as the Fellowship awarded by RGC for their fourth year of study. 
In addition, Fellowship recipients at CityU will be awarded a scholarship 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 2023 entry from 1 September – 1 December 2022 (12 noon Hong Kong Time or GMT +8 hours). The key milestones and application procedures are as follows.

Step 1:
Applicants should first submit an initial application at RGC's Online Application System (OAS) (https://cerg1.ugc.edu.hk/hkpfs/index.html ) to obtain a RGC reference number (RGC’s deadline: 1 December 2022 [12 noon Hong Kong Time or GMT +8 hours]).

Step 2:
Applicants are then required to submit full applications, together with supporting documents, to CityU's Online Admission System, and quote the RGC reference number (CityU’s deadline: 1 December 2022 [23:59 Hong Kong Time or GMT +8 hours]).

The announcement of Fellowship results by the RGC will take place in April/May 2023.
