Research Grant for Temasek Foundation-National Heritage Board 'Our Commonalities, Our Culture' Programme.

The Temasek Foundation-National Heritage Board Research Grant is now open for application till 15 March 2024.



The Heritage Institutions (National Heritage Board) invite applications for the Temasek Foundation-National Heritage Board “Our Commonalities, Our Culture” programme. This 6-month research grant aims to support an in-depth study on the shared commonalities and connections among the multi-ethnic cultures in contemporary Singapore. The research findings will be utilised by the National Heritage Board’s three heritage institutions – Indian Heritage Centre, Malay Heritage Centre and Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, for research documentation, development of educational resources and creation of outreach programmes to promote multicultural understanding and build community cohesion among diverse audiences, particularly youths and families with young children.
