12 SEE Faculty Members Awarded for the General Research Fund (GRF)/Early Career Scheme (ECS) of 2021/22


The Research Grants Council (RGC) has just announced the results of the GRF and ECS exercises for 2021/22. In this latest competition, SEE faculty members received an overall success rate of 48%, with 12 out of 25 applications awarded for GRF or ECS. The success rate was much higher this year than that in the 2020/21 exercise (32%).
