Established in July 2015, The Academy of Hong Kong Studies (AHKS) of The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) is the first academy dedicated to fostering Hong Kong studies within local tertiary institutions.
Aiming at encouraging non-local young scholars to conduct research on Hong Kong-related topics with a view to building a trans-regional Hong Kong Studies Research Community, the AHKS has introduced a initiative entitled “2018 Hong Kong Studies Visiting Doctoral Students Programme”. The research theme of this year is “Studying Hong Kong’s Multiethnicity”. All non-Hong Kong residents who are currently registered PhD students at non-local universities are welcome to apply on or before 28 February 2018. Successful applicants will be given the opportunity to conduct a visiting research in Hong Kong for no more than two months (June to August every year, the exact time period will be further discussed with successful applicants).
The detailed programme information and application procedures are available at the AHKS website: https://www.eduhk.hk/ahks/view.php?m=51335&secid=51587.
