The Research Student Attachment Programme provides invaluable research experience and an opportunity for full-time PhD students to add a global dimension to university life. Successful applicants will continue to receive stipend, if applicable. Travel expenses will normally be supported based on the actual amount spent on going to and returning from the host institution only and will be capped at HK$10,000. A monthly subsistence allowance of HK$7,500 (a daily rate of HK$250) will be granted and the total amount for each PhD student will be capped at HK$45,000, i.e., support for a maximum of six months only. Students will continue to pay tuition fees, if applicable, as required by PolyU.
