One of Asia’s hottest study abroad destinations, Singapore is home to some of the world’s most prestigious colleges, making it an ideal location for students from around the globe. Furthermore, international students can take advantage of Singapore Scholarships to further sweeten the bargain.
Scholarships granted by the government or private foundations are rare; most are offered by the schools themselves. International students are eligible for some scholarships, although most are reserved for citizens of the country.
Here is the list of some prestigious scholarships
Singapore International Graduate Award
An excellent Singapore grant for Indian postgraduates who wish to pursue doctoral-level study is the Singapore International Graduate Award (SINGA).
