Yes. Similar to other PSC scholarship holders, PSC Scholarship (Public Finance) holders will be emplaced onto the PSLP, subject to the scholarship holders meeting the emplacement criteria. As the PSC Scholarship (Public Finance) offers a specialised career proposition, scholarship holders will be emplaced on the PSLP (General Phase – Public Finance), which is a specialised track within the PSLP (General Phase)*, upon graduation. Under the PSLP (General Phase – Public Finance), you will embark on a specialised finance career with your parent agency for at least 2 years to build foundational expertise in the agency’s scope of work. You will have the opportunity to be posted to other agencies to gain broader perspectives on managing fiscal resources. *The PSLP is a talent development programme to groom individuals for leadership positions across the Public Service. The programme has two phases – the General and Sectoral phase. Officers on the PSLP (General Phase) will be posted across two public agencies in different sectors in the first 4 to 6 years of their careers.
We encourage candidates to thoroughly consider their career interest and aspirations before accepting the PSC Scholarship (Public Finance). Scholarship holders will be expected to commit to the career choices made. Requests to pursue a different career pathway or to switch to another parent agency will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, subject to the assessment of the releasing and receiving agency.Scholarship holders are encouraged to have regular career conversations with their parent agency (during studies and after they have started work) to ensure that they understand their career options and the implications of their choices.
