Trainees Research Fund & Research Seed Fund

HKCFP Trainees Research Fund 2023 / HKCFP Research Seed Fund 2023

The Research Committee of HKCFP is pleased to continue to offer the two research funds, The Trainees Research Fund and the Research Seed Fund.

The Trainees Research Fund will be opened to all registered HKCFP trainees and is made of four awards (each up to HK$20,000). It is envisaged it will help trainees especially (but not limited to) those doing research projects as their exit examination. Those who have funding support elsewhere will not be considered.

The Research Seed Fund is open to all HKCFP members where a maximum of HK$25,000 award will be made to the successful applicant to assist the conduction of a research project.

Winners of the award will receive 50% of the approved grant up front and the remainder 50% upon completion of the project.


**Please note that each applicant can only apply either one of the above Funds**


Assessment Criteria for both funds:

  1. Academic rigor of the research project (e.g. originality, methodology, organisation and presentation);
  2. Relevance and impact to family medicine & primary care (e.g. importance of the topic and the impact of the findings on the practice or development of the discipline); and
  3. Overall budget

Each research project submitted will be assessed according to the above assessment criteria set by the selection panel. Please send your submission to:
