Qiqi Chen, our PhD student in APSS, supervised by Prof. Edward KL Chan, is a recipient of the Fulbright-RGC Hong Kong Research Scholar Award.  


The Fulbright Program is the U.S. Government’s flagship international education exchange program and is supported by the U.S. Department of State and partner countries around the world. The Fulbright-RGC Hong Kong Research Scholar Award Program is a collaborative program between the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong & Macau and the RGC to support young Hong Kong scholars to undertake research activities at American universities and research institutes. The Fulbright Program is highly competitive and prestigious.


Qiqi will pursue her placement at The University of Chicago in the academic year 2019/2020. She aims to conduct a comparative study on child protection policies in the United States and China, to depict more culturally-sensitive and integrative assessment regarding family poly-victimization in both the international and Chinese contexts.


Our research program is committed to supporting our postgraduate students to compete for external grants and scholarships.
