  • Been admitted or seeking admission to a local university for a full-time undergraduate degree, excluding healthcare-related disciplines.
  • Good GCE A-Level certification, Polytechnic Diploma, International Baccalaureate Diploma or NUS High School Diploma.
  • Good co-curricular activities (CCA) records and leadership achievements.

Value of award

The scholarship will cover:

  • Full tuition fees and approved academic charges.
  • Allowance for living expenses, hostel and overseas exchange.

Bond period

The bond period you must serve with your sponsoring organisation, depends on the university you are graduating from:
  • 4 years, if you are going to graduate from NTU, NUS, SMU, SUSS or SUTD.
  • 3 years, if you are going to graduate from SIT.
  • The terms and coverage are the same across all sponsoring organisations.
  • SgIS scholars may seek approval from their sponsoring organisations to pursue a Master's degree. Approval is subjected to the needs of the sponsoring organisation, and the bond period may increase proportionately should the sponsoring organisation provide sponsorship for it.
