Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme for International Students
Online education is certainly omnipresent. We do not talk only about acquiring online associate degrees or enrolling in an online university or the like. The Internet has made it possible for people to pursue education on their own, unrestrained and unlimited by institutions or doctrines. Policing the Internet is after all a feat that requires considerable resources and the truth ultimately surfaces. Anyhow, online education persists and people are obtaining their online associate degrees, because this is the way the world has become at a time when prices of education are soaring.
The Hong Kong Research Grants Council (RGC) offers the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme which wants to attract students who are pursuing a PhD degree and have an outstanding academic record.
Under the scholarship program, students can apply at one of the following instituions:
- City University of Hong Kong
- Hong Kong Baptist University
- Lingnan University
- The Chinese University of Hong Kong
- The Education University of Hong Kong
- The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
- Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
- The University of Hong Kong
Overall, the program offers 230 PhD Fellowships which will be awarded during the 2018/19 academic year. The program is intended at foreign students and rules out online education or acquiring online associate degrees.
The scholarship funding is pegged at $30,000.
To clinch this juicy pot, you need to demonstrate outstanding qualities in terms of academic excellence. The scholarship’s official website can be found here. Apart from further information about the program, you will also learn more about the abovementioned universities where the PhD fellowship can be taken.
The deadline is set for December 1 2017.
So, there are quite a handful of decent opportunities out there awaiting for the right sort of candidate. Why should anyone really bother with online education, when they can simply go for the full-time gig. Surely, online education will persist and it will profoundly change how we understand education and it will even change how educational institutions perceive understands, pushing them to reform themselves and cater to the demands of a new breed of learners. We could perhaps call them digital nomads. For the time being thought, we will have to settle for the obvious truth – PhD fellowships and the like need to be taken at a proven and serious institution of learning rather than an online surrogate.
