Interested in Pursuing An Academic Career with NUS/NTU/SMU?

The new MOE-AU Scholarship is an undergraduate scholarship for students who are interested in pursuing an academic career at one of our local Autonomous Universities (AUs). The MOE-AU scholarship provides support at the undergraduate level, to help prepare recipients for future academic careers. The MOE-AU Scholarship will provide sponsorship for undergraduate studies and is tenable at both local and overseas universities.

Currently, MOE-AU scholarship recipients may be paired to NUS, NTU or SMU. The MOE-AU Scholarship sponsors recipients for up to four years of undergraduate studies, after which the scholar is expected to apply for and obtain an AU-sponsored postgraduate scholarship to pursue a PhD from the AU to which they are paired.

Press release is here. Read the FAQ if you are interested.

To help students better understand what an academic career entails and to provide more information on the MOE-AU Scholarship, MOE is organising a tea session as follows:

Date: 7 March 2015 (Saturday)
Time: 3.00 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.
Venue: MOE HQ (1 North Buona Vista Drive).

At the tea session, MOE will provide more information on the MOE-AU Scholarship and answer any queries that students and their parents may have. Academics from NUS, NTU and SMU will also share more on their experiences from their life in academia. Interested students can sign up for the tea session at
