The Singapore National Research Foundation (NRF) Fellowship Programme is a globally competitive programme to attract, recruit and root young scientists and researchers to conduct independent research in Singapore.
Singapore NRF Fellows are given complete independence and freedom to pursue their own research directions. They are free to choose the host organization which will give them the best environment in terms of access to relevant equipment and facilities and in building up the team for their research.
Each Fellow is provided with a research grant of up to S$3 million over five years to support projects that exhibit high likelihood of a research breakthrough. This grant excludes the salary of the NRF Fellow, and will adequately support a research team comprising at least 1 post-doctoral fellow and 2 PhD students, costs of incremental research facilities, consumables and travel for conferences and meetings.
The salary of the NRF Fellow is covered over and above the research grant awarded, and pegged to that of an Assistant Professor at a local university.
The NRF fellowship is a program by the National Research Foundation. Learn details about the program, selection process and application instructions at the NRF Fellowship Program site.
