All research administration offices and selected ACP research administration offices will also have copies of the latest Research Grant Calendar. The Grant Calendar, an annual publication by the SingHealth Office of Research, provides a snapshot of all the grant calls in Singapore that researchers in healthcare institutions may apply for.
