The Commission also decided to provide the Faculty Research Grants to the 34 university teachers and seven research projects have been awarded for Collaborative Research Grants for fiscal year 2076/77.

Every fiscal year the Commission provides the grants for different research support programs to promote research, development and innovation through research funding to HEIs, the faculty and students as well as to strengthen research infrastructure of HEIs in the country. The UGC research funds are directed to reinforce opportunities for academic programs and research initiatives on relevant and appropriate fields and disciplines. Supporting the faculty and institutions financially along with required expertise and resources helps colleges and universities maintain research–based higher education. Moreover, these institutions can prepare trained scholars and researchers competent in policy making, knowledge production and dissemination in the greater interest of the nation and the entire world. It can further strengthen the research capacity development, inculcation of investigative and inquisitive academic culture in higher education institutions and increase in research output.
