For recipients who are graded ‘excellent’ (grade 5) in the progress reports of the previous academic year, the monthly stipend will increase by MOP500 in the next academic year starting from the subsequent August, up to MOP14,000 (approximately equal to USD1,700) per month within the normative study period.

What is funded

-The UM Macao PhD Scholarship can be supported by UM centralized funding.

-The PhD assistantship can be supported by either UM centralized funding or principal investigator (PI)’s research funding.

Duration

-The maximum duration of MPDS is 4 years (12 months per year, maximum 48 months);

- The maximum duration of UM-funded assistantship (i.e., from UM centralized funding) is 4 years (12 months per year, maximum 48 months).

- The maximum duration of PI-funded assistantship is subject to the budget availability of the PI concerned and student’s performance.

Eligibility

Anyone seeking full-time PhD students in the UM, irrespective of their country of origin, prior work experience and ethnic background, should be eligible to apply.

The applicant should have bachelor or master degree with proven academic records, including degree certificate(s), academic awards, publications, etc. The top-ranked applicants with outstanding academic achievements or potential will be selected for the Scholarship.
