MASA POLICY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME (MPDP) RESEARCH GRANT
14th JANUARY, 2022
The Institut Masa Depan Malaysia (MASA) Policy Development Programme (MPDP) research grant introduced last year has received an overwhelming response, with over 130 research proposals received from local and private universities and institutions.
A total of 134 research proposals have been submitted by researchers and academicians from 21 local and private universities and institutions in seven focus areas of strategies as outlined under the on-going National Recovery Plan (NRP).
All research proposals have undergone a thorough selection process by the MPDP secretariat, followed by an evaluation by a team of panel reviewers and experts from their respective fields.
MASA is pleased to announce that a total of 30 research proposals have been shortlisted to receive our research grant of up to RM10,000 per policy brief. Successful applicants are also encouraged to publish their research reports in highly acclaimed journals and reputable publications.
MPDP was introduced in September last year with the aim of enabling researchers and academicians to provide competitive decisions and policy inputs to assist in the implementation of the on-going national recovery process and governmental strategies and plans post Covid-19.
It was also aimed at exposing researchers and academicians to the formulation process of policy inputs that could contribute to high-impact research.
The list of shortlisted MPDP recipients can be found on our social media platforms and website at https://institutmasa.com/masa-policy-development-programme-mpdp-research-grant/. Congratulations to all winners.
