Beasiswa S1 dari Pemerintah Singapura


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 the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN). Each Scholarship is for a full-time undergraduate degree course at the Nanyang Technological University, the National University of Singapore and the Singapore Management University. All disciplines except for Medicine and Dentistry are open to Scholars. The duration of each Scholarship is for three or four years, depending on the discipline.

The award is based on academic 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.

To be eligible, a candidate must:

A recipient of the Scholarship may not concurrently hold any other Scholarship, Fellowship, Grant or Award without prior approval of the Singapore Government.

The Scholarship will cover tuition fees for the duration of the award, a living allowance of S$4,300 per annum, an accommodation allowance based on the different room rates at each university and one return economy class air ticket passage from his/her home country to Singapore for the duration of studies.

Shortlisted nominees will take the entrance examinations set by the Singapore universities. Nominees are further shortlisted based on their entrance examination results and will then have to undergo an interview conducted by interviewer's from the Singapore universities. The entrance examinations and interviews will be conducted from February to April 2009 in Jakarta.
