The Katie Shu Sui Pui Charitable Trust — Research Training Fellowship [舒小佩慈善基金 — 研究培訓奬學金] (hereafter the ‘Fellowship’) aims to enhance the research culture and academic status of Hong Kong Metropolitan University (HKMU), by providing research training and experience to eligible taught postgraduate degree students at HKMU through engaging them in staff projects. The Fellowship provides financial support to full-time taught postgraduate students to support their studies. Recipients of the Fellowship should conduct research work which leads to publication of quality refereed journal papers under the supervision of HKMU staff, and the staff in return benefit from the contribution of the recipients to their research. Only applied research projects are supported by the Trust.

Please refer to the ‘Guidelines on the Research Training Fellowship (for staff access / for student access)’ for more information.
