Singapore Academic Award

The Singapore Academic Award has been recently introduced thanks to the generosity of three Johnians, who have donated the money for the award.

It is a one-off prize of $20,000 Singaporean Dollars for a first-year undergraduate student. The successful student receives the money in the week before the admission to the College. If the competition is very high, the Committee may consider to give two awards.

All Singaporean students, who are offered a place to come to St John's College to pursue an undergraduate degree at the subject of their preference, are eligible for this award. The eligible candidates are notified by the College after the offers are made and they are invited to apply. The shortlisting is performed on the basis of academic excellence and the interviews of the shortlisted candidates take place in Singapore. 

The deadline for 2017 applications is Sunday, 12th February 2017. The interviews will take place in Singapore in the week commencing 20th February.

For enquiries about the Singapore Academic Award or the selection procedure, please contact the Scholarship Administrator.

In 2016, the Singapore Academic Award was awarded to Ernest Goh, a Singaporean who came from Raffles Junior College to St John's to study Law.
