A total of $457 million has been set aside to strengthen social science and humanities research in Singapore. This is an initiative spearheaded by the Social Science Research Council (SSRC).
The funds will help to boost support for young Singaporean researchers with promising careers and efforts to build a vibrant social science and humanities research ecosystem in Singapore.
There will also be a new SSRC graduate research fellowship targeted at Singaporeans pursuing their PhDs or post-doctorate stints overseas. This initiative offers a boost to those Singaporeans who have made the move to embark on a research career on their own, and are interested in working with established researchers in Singapore. The fellowship will provide a grant of up to $10,000 for PhD students, and $20,000 for post-doctorate fellows.
