The fact of being a CUHK student and HKPFS awardee has already opened doors for me, I am sure there is more to come.
Fabricio Oliveira Da Silva is a Brazilian student and HKPFS awardee in the fourth year of a PhD in Applied English Linguistics at CUHK. He says the support the university has provided, including during the Covid-19 pandemic, has been instrumental in his success as a student at CUHK.
“At CUHK, we have great libraries available 24/7, access to high-quality journals, events and cooperation opportunities. As part of my programme, I am also a research assistant and a teaching assistant, working alongside professors and course instructors, which adds to my learning experience,” says Oliveira Da Silva.
“HKPFS awardees can benefit from all the financial support needed to carry out research and travel for conferences, and the visibility of being a student at one of the most prestigious universities in Asia and the world,” Oliveira Da Silva says. “The fact of being a CUHK student and HKPFS awardee has already opened doors for me, such as job offers, publishing a book chapter, giving lectures as an invited speaker and research cooperation. I am sure there is more to come.”
