Can Singapore Permanent Residents apply for this scholarship?
The Lee Kuan Yew Scholarship is only open to Singapore Citizens.
Can I apply if I do not have a Second Class Upper Honours Degree or equivalent?
Yes, you may apply. Applications will be assessed holistically, taking into consideration applicants' track record of professional achievements, leadership, contributions to the community, etc.
While applicants' academic records are also a factor for consideration, those who do not possess a Second Class Upper Honours Degree but have strong compensating factors in other areas may also be considered.
I intend to pursue my postgraduate studies in a subsequent academic year (e.g. 2017), rather than in the upcoming academic year (i.e. 2016). When should I apply for the scholarship?
The current scholarship application exercise is for applicants who intend to pursue their postgraduate studies in the upcoming academic year (AY). For example, if you intend to commence your studies in AY 2016, you should apply for the scholarship in the 2016 application exercise, when application begins in Nov 2015. If you intend to pursue your studies in AY 2017 or beyond, you may wish to consider applying when the next cycle opens in Nov 2016.
I am currently in the final year of my undergraduate studies, and intend to pursue my postgraduate studies following graduation. Am I eligible for the Lee Kuan Yew scholarship?
You may submit an application as long as the outcomes of your postgraduate applications will be ready on time for you to start the postgraduate programme in the upcoming academic year (i.e. AY2016). However, your scholarship can only be confirmed after you have received your final results and degree classification for your undergraduate degree.
I am in the midst of pursuing my Master's/PhD studies. Can i apply for this scholarship?
Yes, you can apply for this scholarship, provided that you have at least one full academic year remaining from the time you apply.
Do I need to take pre-admission tests for this scholarship application?
No, you do not need to take pre-admission (e.g. TOEFL, GRE or GMAT) specifically for this scholarship application. However, you should check with the universities that you are applying to, on their requirements for admission.
Is there any age restriction for applicants of the scholarship?
Is the scholarship open to applicants from all professions?
