Our Department is inviting applications to the HKU Civil Centennial Future Scholars scheme. The scheme allows high calibre students who are seriously considering to join our Department as Ph.D. students to visit and conduct research in summer 2019 for a period of about 2.5 weeks. Priorities will be given to the top students who would be strong candidates competing for the Hong Kong Ph.D. Fellowship in the upcoming 2019 admission. The visit will allow the students to see our learning environment and get to know their potential supervisors and future research work.
Details of the scheme are as follows:
Up to 12 scholarships are available in summer 2019.
The Scholars will visit the Department within the period from 15 to 31 July 2019 to conduct research under individual supervisors.
A Scholarship of HK$3,500 will be awarded.
Free accommodation will be provided in a student hall of residence.
Seminars, discussion sessions and other activities also will be arranged for the Scholars.

Last year, our group welcomed Yidong Zhao as a CCFS Scholar and we hope to host another talented student this year.
