Research Funding

THE GRADUATE RESEARCH TRUST FUND (GRTF)

Investing in research and innovation has proven to be an important technique to facilitate sustainable development in any nation. The main purpose of research is to inform action, to prove a theory, and contribute to developing knowledge in a field or study. However, conducting research in the sub-Saharan region may be hampered by lack of resources, mainly financial which limits the impact of and ability to publish many research/literature conducted by students and faculty. In view of this, and after extensive deliberations and consultations, the Graduate Students’ Association of Ghana (GRASAG) in April 2019 proposed the institutionalization of the Graduate Research Trust Fund (GRTF), with the aim of funding innovative research that will lead to intellectual development, invoke a demand for change, and improve the lives of people in the country and beyond. Students who are principal contributors to the fund may access this grant by soliciting same through the Board of Trustees.
