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 75 research proposals have been approved for internal funding. Academics from all faculties, including the Ngee Ann Kongsi Library and the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, were represented in the successful applications. Since 2017, the Goldsmiths-LASALLE Partnership Innovation Fund provides additional avenues to engage in funded innovative cross-disciplinary collaborative research projects.
