*Application for the Singapore Scholarship for Academic Year 2008/2009 is now open except for Brunei & Malaysia.

Application for Brunei and Malaysia will be open in March 2008 after the respective results for the General Certificate of Education Advanced Level and Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) are released.

The Singapore Scholarship was announced by then Prime Minister of Singapore, Mr Goh Chok Tong, at the 6th ASEAN Summit in December 1998. The objective of the Singapore Scholarship at that time was to help alleviate the problem of educating young people in the ASEAN countries due to the regional economic crisis.

The Singapore Government awards the Scholarship to Government-endorsed students from the other member countries of ASEAN. Each scholarship is for a full-time undergraduate degree course at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), the National University of Singapore (NUS) or the Singapore Management University (SMU). All disciplines except Architecture, Law, Biomedical Sciences/Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dentistry and Medicine are open for application. The duration of each scholarship is for three or four years, depending on the discipline.

The award is based on merit and places will be allocated by open competition. If necessary, a one-year bridging or foundation programme, in addition to the undergraduate studies, will be provided.
