UTAR Research Fund Projects

 

Internal   |  External

As a first step to encourage research activities among academic staff, UTAR established UTAR Research Fund (UTARRF) as an internal research grant scheme designed to provide seed funding to support UTAR researchers particularly those who are in the embryonic stages of building up their experience to secure external research grants.

The application for UTARRF has been currently scheduled as follow:
