Meet the Fellows

Each year the Foundation selects a small number of exceptional Hong Kong scientists for support under the Senior Research Fellowship scheme.

The Senior Research Fellowships were inaugurated in 1996 to offer full financial support for senior scientists to devote a year to full-time research, away from heavy teaching and administrative responsibilities.

The Fellows are selected by the Foundation on the basis of confidential peer assessments and in these exercises, the Foundation is privileged to be able to enlist help from a number of leading scientists in the international community.
