About SMF

Since its set up in 2001, the SMF has been promoting research through the award of post graduate research scholarships tenable at NUS, NTU and Research Institutes in Singapore, and funding research programmes in selected areas.

More than 200 post graduate research scholarships were awarded. These scholarships included supporting clinician scientists in their research endeavors. SMF scholars have progressed well in their research and a number of them has attained faculty positions in our Universities or continued their research at the Universities and Research Institutes locally and abroad.

With effect from 2010, the SMF has discontinued its scholarship schemes and has instead channeled its funds to support smaller niche research programmes in Singapore. The research programmes supported include Liver Cancer, Parkinson Disease, Neuromuscular Disease, Bio-fuel and Mental Health.

In 2011, SMF initiated grant calls opened to researchers from NUS, NTU, NIE and selected Research Institutes. It has to date, awarded research grants in Pedagogy and Learning/ Special Needs Education, Ageing, Palliative Care and Non-medical Bio-Science. A second grant call inviting more research proposals in these areas was opened December 2012. To date, there has been five grant calls with a sixth grant call in progress.
