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.
Professional & Creative Activity
The Professional and Creative Activity (PCA) scheme is a retrospective scheme that allows individual staff members or a team of staff to submit applications for PCA points for activities that were conducted within a defined time span, normally corresponding to the previous academic year.
