Funding Oportunities

Graduate student fellowships

If you consider joining our lab as a graduate student, you can explore the following funding opportunities. They differ in their emphasis on supporting Singaporean vs international students, the level of competitiveness, funding, and the hosting institution. As our lab collaborates with several A*Star researchers, fellowships from these institutions are also a possibility. Please contact us with any questions regarding this.
