PhD students are offered scholarships to support their studies. There are two categories of these doctoral awards. The first is the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme scholarships, which are available for 3 or 4 years of study.
The second is the City University PhD scholarship scheme. As with the HKPFS scholarships, these are also offered for either 3 or 4 years.
In addition to these scholarships, there are various internal awards and scholarships – for the waiving of fees or to support fieldwork or to go to conferences – that students can apply for from the University. At the same time, our department also provides financial support for PhD students who want to go to conferences or undertake fieldwork.
