Short Term Faculty Exchange Program with CUHK

Closing date: 20 April 2017

The Short Term Faculty Exchange Program between the University of Sydney (Sydney) and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) aims to promote beneficial linkage and strengthen academic collaboration of the two institutions.

Exchange Activities
The selected academics participating in the program will take part in one-week academic visit at the host institution and engage in a series of academic activities relevant to their interest and focus, and meet with scholars and researchers to explore academic collaboration in their fields of expertise. The exchange activities include, but are not limited to, guest lectures, master classes, seminars, and exploratory discussions around future research collaborations.

Financial Support
The home institution will be responsible for an economy class return air ticket while the host institutions will provide accommodation for up to seven nights.

For outbound visit to CUHK, the China Studies Centre will provide a grant of AUD$1500 to each selected Sydney academic to cover the cost of one return economy airfare to Hong Kong. The CUHK’s Office of Academic Links will arrange suitable housing in Hong Kong for the selected Sydney academics.

For inbound visit to Sydney, CUHK academics will make application through its Office of Academic Links, which will be responsible for the cost of the international airfare of its own academics. The China Studies Centre will provide a grant of AUD$1500 to the host faculty at Sydney to arrange one-week accommodation in Australia for the selected CUHK academic. The fund will be transferred to the university account nominated by the host faculty at Sydney.

Number of Awards
Up to four awards will be made in 2017-2018 to Sydney academics, with one award targeting China Studies.
