More than 2 academic years remaining

  • SGD 60,000
  • Overseas exchange allowance
  • 3-year bond
  • John is enrolled in a 4-year course, and he applied in Year 2, Semester 2. He would have more than 2 academic years left at the point of application, hence he would receive the SGD 60,000 grant and must serve a 3-year bond.
  • Sally is enrolled in a 4-year course, and she applied in Year 3, Semester 2. She would have 1.5 academic years left at the point of application, hence she would receive the SGD 40,000 grant and must serve a 2-year bond.
  • The terms and coverage are the same across all sponsoring organisations.
