These grants are used for scholarship and research-related activities of current NRF-rated researchers. There is considerable flexibility built into the administration of the funds to allow researchers to use the funds in various ways in keeping their research activities afloat during the occasions when other funding is scarce.
The funding incentivises excellent research and encourages researchers to:
- Subject themselves for rating,
- Maintain their ratings once they are rated, and
- Attain ever higher ratings until they reach the top rating (A1).
