Who We Look For
You should be an all-rounder who have excelled in both academic and non-academic pursuits. A go-getter, you would have demonstrated excellent leadership capabilities in your CCAs and in activities outside of school.
Who is Eligible
MAS Undergraduate Scholarship
If you are an ‘A’-Level candidate, you should offer at least 11 academic units. All candidates are given equal consideration regardless of the subjects they have taken. The scholarship is also open to Polytechnic students and students who are taking the International Baccalaureate. Students must have obtained at least 36 points from the IB programme to be considered.
MAS Mid-Term Undergraduate Scholarship
Only students in or before their penultimate year of undergraduate studies are eligible for the MAS Mid-Term Undergraduate Scholarship. In addition to the MAS Undergraduate Scholarship criteria, the MAS Mid-Term Undergraduate Scholarship offer is conditional upon the candidate’s performance during an internship with MAS of at least 8 weeks’ duration.
The scholarship is open to Singapore Citizens, Singapore Permanent Residents and foreign citizens who will undertake to obtain Singapore citizenship.
What the MAS Scholarship offers
The scholarship is tenable for 4 years of study in any discipline (except for Medicine, Dentistry and Architecture) at any reputable university, in Singapore or overseas. Language courses are supported if they earn credits that count towards the final degree.
Training and Career Development
We strongly believe that you should make the most of your 4 years in university to gain a myriad of experiences that will prepare you well for the working world. The scholarship comes with an 8-week internship with MAS where you will be assigned a project in a specific department which will enable you to feel the pulse of the organisation.
We are also supportive of our scholars who bring their explorations beyond textbooks and their universities. From spending a term abroad and immersing in another culture, to interning with private sector organisations to gain exposure to the dynamic world of finance – we encourage our scholars to broaden their horizons.
We may sponsor you for postgraduate studies after your undergraduate degree. The decision depends on a combination of factors such as your academic results, chosen field for further studies and your academic inclinations.
Upon completing your undergraduate studies, you will be placed in one functional area within MAS, where you will receive comprehensive training and build greater depth of knowledge and skills. There will be opportunities for you to explore the different functions in MAS to provide you with a well-rounded career in MAS.
If you wish to be considered in the provisional selection exercise, you should submit your application in September. You can submit your application using your preliminary examination results. You do not need to secure a place before applying for the scholarship, but you should indicate your choice of universities and courses in the application.
Scholarship offers made at the end of the provisional exercise will be conditional upon candidates’ meeting our academic requirements in the final examinations. You may be considered in the main exercise (in March) if you are not shortlisted in the provisional exercise.
How to Apply
If you have what it takes and the passion to shape Singapore’s economic and financial development, you may very well be who we are looking for.
Application is open from 1st to 30th September for Provisional cycle, and 1st January to 10 calendar days after the release of the GCE ‘A’ Level results for the main cycle.
