MHF commissions and collaborates with various partners to produce books and publications that provide an insight to the culture and heritage of the Malay community.
WarisanSG is an online publication platform to document and facilitate the dissemination of quality Malay heritage information and stories (narratives), thereby enhancing awareness and appreciation of expert knowledge on Malay heritage.
Seminars and Workshops

MHF Internship Programme for Tertiary Students
The MHF Internship Programme aims to strengthen the students’ cultural identity and root them to Malay culture beyond just appreciation and knowledge, so that they can become future ambassadors and advocates in the culture and heritage sector.
Since 2015, MHF has awarded the top Honours undergraduate from the Department of Malay Studies (NUS) with the MHF Award. This award is presented at the annual award presentation ceremony for the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, NUS.
