SPH Foundation’s bond-free scholarship now open for registration
The Lim Kim San Memorial Scholarship supports students who wish to pursue full-time studies in languages, linguistics and humanities at local universities.
Singapore citizens whose monthly household income is $5,000 or less may now apply for a bond-free scholarship to study at local universities.
The Lim Kim San Memorial Scholarship, which is funded by the Singapore Press Holdings, supports students who wish to pursue full-time studies in languages, linguistics and humanities at local universities.
The scholarship, which is open for application from now until Apr 28, was established upon the suggestion of Singapore’s first minister for finance, Mr Lim Kim San.
Successful applicants will enjoy scholarship benefits such as fully-paid education, which includes tuition and examination fees.
Aside from tuition and compulsory fees, applicants will receive a yearly living allowance of $2,000 and a book allowance of $300 for the minimum time it takes to complete a degree, including getting an honours degree, if applicable, but not exceeding four years.
While the scholarship is bond-free, recipients are required to give back to society through community work during or after their studies.
There may also be opportunities for scholarship recipients to participate in internships at SPH Media, if suitable openings are available.
In order to qualify, applicants must have excellent GCE O and A-Level results, excellent results in their annual exams at local universities or an outstanding record of co-curricular activities.
Interested applicants can apply for the scholarship or find the full eligibility criteria on its website. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed in May or June.
