FRIDAY, 28 FEBRUARY
– The government through the Ministry of Education (KPM) continues to promote the generation of knowledge that can contribute to an increased level of intellectuality as well as the creation of new technology.
For this purpose, KPM is offering the Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (FRGS) for the first phase in 2014 from 24 February onwards as an effort to acculturate research at institutions of higher learning.
According to a statement issued by the Centre for Research and Innovation (PPI) Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), researchers who are interested can apply on-line by using the MyGRANT system to access the website http://mygrants.gov.my.
FRGS was first offered in 2006 and received overwhelming response from researchers. Thus, through the 10th Malaysia Plan (RMK10), a research fund of RM741 million was allocated to finance research including FRGS.
Closing date for the application of FRGS through on-line MyGRANTS system at PPI level is 31 March 2014 (Monday).
