Singapore Academic Award

Award Details

The Singapore Academic Award was introduced in 2016 thanks to the generosity of alumni of the College, 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.

Eligibility & Application

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 application procedure for 2018 has now been closed. The application deadlines and interview dates are normally announced by the end of February.

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