The Ministry of Home Affairs will be holding the 2010 run of the Home Team Research Award Programme and would like to invite students from Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences to undertake research on topics related to the Home Team. This year, due to the overwhelming response by post-graduates, they have decided to open the programme to post-grads as well.
The Home Team consists of various agencies including the Singapore Police Force (SPF), Prison Service, Immigrations and Checkpoints Authority (ICA), Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) etc and they hope to be able to engage local university students to do research pertaining to Home Team’s core work domain areas. This grant will help subsidise students’ expenditure (i.e. transport allowance, material costs) in the course of their research, with the max amount awarded capped at $2500*, on a reimbursement basis. Please do note that only 8 projects will be awarded the grant; 4 for undergrads, 4 for post grads and the amount granted will be capped at $1500 for undergrads and $2500 for post-grads, on a reimbursement basis.
Applicants are welcome to propose new topics which have to be related to the Home Team’s core work domain areas as mentioned here. Please kindly note that the application form and supporting documents are due by the 16th of October 2010 and to please attention the documents to Ms Debbie Loh. She can be contacted at 64787025 or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
