The application result for Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (FRGS), Round 2/2010, has been announced on August 19, 2010. Two applications from LSIBF were approved:

  1. Inclusion of Disabled People in Sabah Workforce: Investigating the Influence of Persons with Disabilities Act 2008, Personal Attributes and Organizational Context (Head of Project: Dr. Magdalene Ang)
  2. A New Measure of the Intensity of Capital Account Openness (Head of Project: Ling Tai Hu).

LSIBF would like to congratulate Dr. Magdalene, Ling Tai Hu and their respective team members for the success in this competitive national grant application.
