HKU Foundation Publication Award for Research Postgraduate Students 2023
I am pleased to invite applications from research postgraduate (RPg) students for the newly established HKU Foundation Publication Award for Research Postgraduate Students 2023.
2. With the generous donation from the HKU Foundation, the Graduate School established the HKU Foundation Publication Award to give due recognition to RPg students who have published a journal article of exceptional quality. Up to twenty awards, in the form of a cash prize of HK$5,000, can be made each year to RPg students who have published a journal article of exceptional quality in a research area related to the thesis study.
3. For the 2023 Publication Award, the nominated journal articles must have been published during the preceding calendar year, i.e. between January 1 and December 31, 2022; and the by-line must show clearly that the candidate’s affiliation is HKU. For journal articles bearing multiple publication dates, the date on which it is firstly published or made publicly available, either online or in print, should be counted.
4. RPg students who are interested to apply for the Award should submit an application to the Faculty Office by February 28, 2023. Each Faculty may nominate up to ten best outputs, in order of priority, to the Graduate School by March 31, 2023. The terms of reference and application form are posted on the Graduate School homepage.
5. For enquiries, please contact the Graduate School at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to receiving your applications.
