School of Computing Scholarship

The School of Computing Scholarship was first established for award in AY2013-14 using the School’s Pooled Endowed Fund.


The objective of the Scholarship is to identify and support outstanding Singaporean students (including Singapore Permanent Residents) who demonstrate academic excellence, high intellectual capacity, sound character, strong leadership potential, and a passion for creativity and innovation.

Scholars are expected to contribute significantly to the NUS School of Computing community while studying here and the community at large when they graduate.

Nature and value of Scholarship

The Scholarship will cover the scholar’s tuition fees (excluding the MOE Tuition Grant) annually up to the amount that is payable by a Singaporean student. It is tenable for a maximum of 4 years and 5 years for pursuing a single undergraduate degree and double undergraduate degree courses at the School respectively. Scholars must be enrolled as full-time undergraduate students at the School during the tenure of the scholarship.

The scholar should not be concurrent holders of any other form of aid such as grants, bursaries and scholarships. Applicants with such other forms of support will need to obtain prior approval from the respective awarding bodies for the concurrent holding of the awards.

The scholar must maintain a minimum GPA (Grade Point Average) of 3.50 every semester to receive the scholarship.

The Scholarship will be withdrawn at any time if the academic progress or conduct of the scholar is not satisfactory.

If the scholar decides to terminate the scholarship prematurely, the School reserves the right to impose a repayment on a case-by-case basis.
