Established by the Research Grants Council (RGC) of Hong Kong in 2009, the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS) aims at attracting the best and brightest students in the world to pursue their PhD studies and research in Hong Kong's institutions.

Candidates who are seeking admission as new full time PhD students at PolyU, irrespective of their country of origin, prior work experience, and ethnic background, are eligible to apply. If you are successful, you may pursue your research under supervision by one of more academic staff in the Partner State Key Laboratory of Ultra-precision Machining Technology.
The Fellowship will provide a monthly stipend of HK$20,000 (approx. US$2,600), a conference and research-related travel allowance of HK$10,000 (approx. US$ 1,300) per year up to three years as well as a waiver of the PhD registration fee. 10>
