Education Research Funding Programme

    The Office of Education Research (OER) fourth tranche of the Education Research Funding Programme (ERFP)  will continue to build on the work that has been undertaken in the previous three cycles of education funding by strengthening the foundation (in terms of knowledge, capability and structure) for education research, development and innovation in existing and emerging research areas. NIE OER will also continue to encourage efforts to design, develop and implement strategic, evidence-based, collaborative, scientifically-rigorous and outcomes-focused innovations in schools and classrooms. The primary aims are to improve classroom practice, enhance student outcomes, and build organizational and teacher capacities. 

    The 22nd Request Proposals (RFP) will be the first call to open to Institutes of Higher Learning (IHL) with the aim of fostering stronger collaborations with IHL partners.

     

     

  • OER announces its Request for Proposals (RFP) twice a year. All submitted grant applications undergo a rigorous process which is designed to ensure stringency in the review process and fairness in the award of grants.

    Grant applications of varying values (Tier 1-3 & Programmatic Proposal) are evaluated and approved by the OER Education Research Committee (ERC), NIE ERC and MOE ERC.

    Prior to applying for a grant application, it is important to familiarize with the grant requirements and understand how to write good quality proposals. The grant is officially awarded when you receive and accept the letter of offer.

    NIE Applicants and IHL Applicants may refer to the Grant Call Documents enclosed in the next section for detailed processes in applying for an ERFP Grant.
