Hong Kong-Scotland Partners in Post Doctoral Research Scholarship Scheme

British Council Hong Kong and Scotland are administering the Hong Kong-Scotland Partners in Post Doctoral Research Scholarship Scheme. The scholarships are funded by the Scottish Government and the Hong Kong Research Grants Council for the purpose of stimulating and strengthening academic and research links between Scotland and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The aim of this initiative is to foster academic links between Scotland and Hong Kong by enabling researchers to conduct cutting edge research in each other’s country. This is the second year of the scholarship scheme.

Up to 10 awards are available in the 2013/14 financial year to researchers who are employed at either a Scottish university or research institution or a Hong Kong University Grants Committee (UGC)-funded institution. The 10 awards available will be divided equally between researchers based in Hong Kong and Scottish universities.
Applications are welcome from researchers working in the following areas:

  • Renewable and new energies
  • Healthcare and life sciences
  • Sustainable development
  • Economics and finance

Please note that the deadline for receipt of applications is 18th October 2013.
