Research Funding Schemes

In January 2013, four new Research Funding Schemes were introduced to support staff members in the realisation of high-level academic-theoretical or practice-based research activities. Since then, more than 50 research proposals have been approved for internal funding, with a total financial commitment from the institution exceeding S$1,900,000. Academics from all faculties, including the Ngee Ann Kongsi Library and the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, were represented in the successful applications.
