Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (FRGS)

Fundamental research involves the exploration of new ideas, concepts or theories which will be the backbone to new discoveries, expansion of knowledge and sophisticated and state of the art inventions. In this respect, under the Ninth Malaysia Plan (RMK-9), the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) has allocated RM200 million to fund fundamental research projects in Public of Higher Education Institutions. The Ministry opened applications for the FRGS for the first time in 2006.
