Grants & Funding Opportunities
As a research-driven association, helping our academic staff to obtain research funding is a priority.
We funds several programmes that provide grants to researchers for specialized equipment, consumable supplies and Master of Science students. Grants are awarded to individual scientists and research groups. The call for 2020, for Individuals and Research Units will open in late January or early February. The link to apply online will only be available once the call opens and will no longer be active once the call closes.
We also strongly encourage our academic staff to apply for external research funding. Below we have provided a list of Malaysian and international research funding bodies.
