Visiting Scholar Scheme at Universities Service Centre, Hong Kong

I recently received the following letter from Jean Hung of the Universities Service Centre at Chinese University of Hong Kong regarding the availability of grants to fund visits to the Centre to conduct research. I am posting it here (with some irrelevant material deleted) because the Centre has an excellent collection of periodicals and newspapers (in particular, local fazhibao (法制报)) relevant to research in Chinese law. I had a very productive stay there many years ago and recommend it highly.

Dear Friends,

It is my pleasure to report to you that we have received a generous donation from the Lee Hysan (Hong Kong) Foundation to support our Visiting Scholar Scheme at USC.  The Lee Hysan Visiting Scholar Scheme provides grants to mainland and overseas scholars to visit the Centre for the purpose of conducting research. The grants subsidizes the rental for on-campus accommodation and provides per diem during the period of stay. The period of visit can be between 1 - 3 months.

Apart from giving at least one luncheon seminar during their stay, a Lee Hysan Visiting Scholar is required to support activities organized by the Centre, such as public lectures or other academic events to promote a better understanding of China among students or the general public in Hong Kong.

Candidates for the Scheme are expected to be either established experts or promising young scholars in the field, who have demonstrated experiences in empirical studies. Interested applicants are advised to return to us the application form duly filled, together with a  CV and a research proposal of two pages. Graduate student applicants need to submit an additional recommendation letter of their supervisor.  Research topics must have either a Mainland or Hong Kong focus. Please refer to our USC website for the application procedure.

Best wishes
