LEWI Initiatives


The LEWI Visiting Fellowship Programme invites overseas scholars at various stages in their careers – from doctoral students to early-career academics to established researchers – to conduct collaborative research at LEWI and utilise the resources and services LEWI has to offer. LEWI Visiting Fellows are expected to actively engage with LEWI staff and fellows. They are also expected to participate in events organized by LEWI. 




  • Access to HKBU library resources
  • Access to IT services (subject to availability)
  • Office space (subject to availability)
  • Opportunities to collaborate with LEWI staff and fellows
  • Access to events organised by LEWI (conferences, seminars)
  • Present research work in a seminar




We accept applications all year round. Application should include a 3-5 page description of the research project, proposed stay in Hong Kong, an up-to-date curriculum vitae, and information on collaborators in Hong Kong, if any.




  • LEWI Visiting Fellows are responsible for arranging for their own financial support.
  • The length of the visiting fellowship varies according to the research plans of the scholars concerned.
