Fellowship Program in Hong Kong

Check out this great new opportunity for *graduate students & recent PhD recipients* in the various fields mentioned. David Horner (retired Director of MSU's International Center) would be happy to answer any questions--his contact information in East Lansing is given below--Bill Nolting, U-M International Center
----------

A new fellowship program, sponsored by Dow Chemical Hong Kong, is available to U.S. graduate students or recent Ph.D. recipients from Michigan universities who are studying in the following areas: Environment, Energy, Sustainability, Education, Science or Technology. Please note that only U.S. citizens and permanent residents (Green Card holders) are eligible.

It provides for research to be undertaken at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), a beautiful, relatively new, English-language university in Hong Kong. Preference will be given to proposals that show a link between the proposed research project and China.

The program is modeled along the lines of a Fulbright Grant which provides approximately $17K stipend, $5K travel, and $13K living allowance, plus health insurance.

The Hong Kong America Center (HKAC), where David Horner spent his Fulbright year (2003-04), is the administrator for the program. Inquiries should be sent to either me (david.horner@gmail.com) 517-432-7989, Dr. Glenn Shive (glennshive@cuhk.edu.hk) or Dr. David Zweig (sozweig@ust.hk) at HKUST.

For full information and the application form, please see:
