Student Scholarships and Awards


NUS offers a variety of scholarships for NUS freshmen and current undergraduate students.  Students who are interested in these scholarships are encouraged to find out more through NUS office of administration here.  All students must apply through the common online scholarship application for NUS Scholarships.

Thanks to the generous contributions from our corporate sponsors, alumni and donors, FST also offers a range of scholarships and prizes exclusively to our FST students each year. These scholarships and prizes are awarded either automatically on the basis of academic merits or after application and assessment against a specific award criteria.


Scholarships are awarded to recognize our best performing students who are able to demonstrate overall academic overall excellence and outstanding performance in other areas such as creativity, community services and leadership. Most of our current scholarships in the undergraduate program are sponsored by industry and therefore offer students the unique opportunity to complete a nearly five-month internship with the sponsor.
