Outline

Univerisity of Macau(UM) was founded in 1981. Through 38 years of development, UM is now not only the best university, but also the only public comprehensive university, in Macao. English is the main medium of instruction at UM. UM is ranked among the top 400 in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University and QS World University Rankings is also rising steadily to No 443 in 2019.

-The UM Macao PhD Scholarship (MPDS):

provides each awardee with a monthly stipend of MOP20,000 (approximately equal to USD2,400) and a conference or research-related travel allowance up to MOP10,000  (approximately equal to USD1,200) per academic year (August to July) for a period up to 4 years. The unused travel allowance in any academic year cannot be carried forward to the next academic year.

-The UM PhD Assistantship:

provides each new recipient with a starting monthly stipend of MOP12,500 (approximately equal to USD1,500). 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.

Application Process

- Applicants seeking full-time PhD study in the UM should submit application for the MPDS or PhD assistantship simultaneously when submitting online application for admission.

- Applicants must meet the admission requirements of their selected programmes in addition to the requirements by the university.
