Fully Funded 2024 SINGA Scholarship for International Students in Singapore

Written by admin

The A STAR Graduate Scholarship (AGS) funds up to four years of PhD or EngD studies at autonomous universities in Singapore.

As an AGS scholar, you’ll engage in industry-focused and user-driven R&D projects, and may participate in an overseas attachment for up to 12 months during your studies.

After completing your PhD or EngD, you can apply for the A STAR International Fellowship (AIF) to pursue post-doctoral training at top international universities or research institutions, furthering your expertise and expanding your global network.

At A STAR Graduate Academy, we value diverse talent for fostering innovation and interdisciplinary research. Join our community to share new perspectives and tackle evolving challenges in science and research. As an AGS scholar, you’ll receive top-tier education locally and contribute significantly to science and society in Singapore.

Start your research journey with AGS at an A STAR Research Institute and register your PhD or EngD candidature at autonomous universities in Singapore.
