Scholarship Roundup (July 2021)

The main scholarship cycle is from the release of the A-Levels results to roughly two months on, but there are some evergreen offers worth taking a look at. In this Scholarship Roundup, we put the spotlight on some less well-known (but no less valuable!) offers you may not have seen before. Apply with BrightSparks if you’re interested.


1.     Duke-NUS Medical School Scholarship and Bursary

Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School


There are various types of merit scholarships available, externally and at Duke-NUS. Merit scholarships are generally awarded based on academic achievement and personal attributes such as meaningful involvement in community service or leadership experiences.  Several scholarships are valid for 4 years and may be used for tuition fees, miscellaneous fees, living expenses as well as other fees associated with studying at Duke-NUS. 


To be considered for a merit scholarship at Duke-NUS, interested applicants must submit a financial aid application within 28 calendar days after attending the admission interview on Applicant Day.  Scholarship recipients are selected by the School’s Scholarship Selection Committee and only successful applicants will be informed of their award.
