AcRF Tier 2

The MOE Academic Research Fund (AcRF) Tier 2 funds research projects on a competitive basis across Singapore-based universities. Each grant proposal submitted should have a total project value (TPV) (excluding research scholarships) of between S$500,000 and S$1 million over a three-year duration. Only Pure Mathematics and Statistics projects under the Informatics and Mathematics discipline cluster with TPV of S$250,000 and above are also eligible for funding under AcRF Tier 2. Projects under the Accountancy, Business, Humanities and Social Sciences discipline cluster with TPV of S$100,000 and above are also eligible for funding under AcRF Tier 2. Two grant calls are planned for each year. The submitted proposals will be reviewed and evaluated by an Expert Panel and the Academic Research Council (ARC). Please note that submitted proposals have to be verified by the university’s Office of Research (ORE) and endorsed by the Director of Research (DOR) before it can even be considered for evaluation.

Principal Investigator (PI) and Co-investigators (co-PIs) must be full-time faculty based locally in our Autonomous Universities (AUs), including autonomous institutions within the AUs, e.g. Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School. Full-time faculty hold appointment and perform duties at the AU for a minimum of 9 months a year.
