CLASS supports various schemes to encourage the engagement of researchers in cross-disciplinary projects. Our events seek different levels of discourse - from academic research to public education - and involve eminent scholars, researchers, policy makers, as well as members of the public.

Post-event evaluation forms (for initiators) are also available for download here.

Applications for CLASS sponsorship in respect of three of its schemes will from now on be based on two half-yearly calls, instead of on a rolling basis as was done previously. Colleagues are advised to plan their events well in advance and adhere strictly to the deadline for each grant call. Applications will still need to be endorsed by the respective Heads of Department (where applicable) and School Chair before submission to CLASS.
Please also note that HoDs and School Chairs will from now on be asked to undertake to provide necessary administrative support to activities and events which they endorse and forward to CLASS.

Please refer to the current funding guidelines as of April 2017 before submitting the application form.
The 3 schemes which will come under this new set of arrangements are:
1) Conference, Symposium and Workshop Scheme
– Application form can be downloaded from here​​​​
