The application timeframes for the different Healthcare Scholarships are indicated under the respective scholarship schemes
Applying for Healthcare Scholarships before the release of your final school grades will allow you more time to complete your application form and prepare your personal statements.
Applicants with GCE A Levels should generally be taking at least 10 Academic Units (AUs). General paper (GP), Project Work (PW), Mother Tongue Language (MTL) at A-Level (except MTL-B) or Higher MTL at O-Level and other H1 subjects are considered as 1 AU. H2 subjects, including Knowledge and Inquiry (KI), are considered as 2 AUs. H3 subjects are considered as 1 AU.
A holistic approach is taken when assessing your suitability for a scholarship award. Beyond academic excellence, we will also consider your suitability and passion for a career in public healthcare.
Qualities such as outstanding achievements in non-academic areas, volunteering and community work will also be considered on a case-by-case basis.
It is not necessary to secure a place in university before or at the point of applying for a Healthcare Scholarship. Nonetheless, you should indicate the universities and course of study you have applied to or intend to apply to, in your scholarship application. You are responsible for the submission of your own university applications.
The list is private and confidential. The recommended university list will be provided to our successful scholarship recipients.
You may refer to
Allied Health Professions Council (AHPC) website for the list of recognised qualifications for selected disciplines. This is to ensure that the universities you are considering are recognised for registration and practice in Singapore. Do note that the Healthcare Scholarships list of approved overseas universities may differ from the AHPC list.
You are strongly encouraged to do research and apply for the scholarship scheme that you are most interested in. If you are shortlisted for multiple scholarship schemes, we will contact you to understand your preference and schedule you for the respective interview board. Do note that we will only allow applicants to be interviewed for one scholarship scheme per application cycle.
You will be asked to indicate your preferences in the application form. Our scholarship recipients will be informed of their allocation sometime in July.
The allocations are determined by the needs of the public healthcare sector. This is so that we can ensure a good balance between Singapore's healthcare manpower needs as well as your personal preference.
