CUHK and Stanford University’s Center for Advanced Study in Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) have recently set up a Partner Fellowship Program to provide opportunities for CUHK faculty members to advance their research by taking part in a residential fellowship program at Stanford University that fosters interdisciplinary intellectual exchange. Selected fellows will spend nine months at CASBS, where they will meet with fellows from diverse academic disciplines worldwide. The program will strengthen their collaboration network and facilitate the development of cutting-edge approaches to critical social problems. This prestigious opportunity is open to scholars in the behavioral and social sciences.

The Fellowship Program will soon invite applications for 2019-20 (Visit period: September 2019-May 2020).
