Singapore Offering Fully Funded Scholarship For Students

The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (ASTAR) is offering the A STAR Graduate Scholarship (AGS), a fully funded opportunity for PhD or EngD applicants. Open to both Singaporean and international students with bachelor’s degrees, this scholarship covers up to four years of doctoral studies at autonomous universities in Singapore. Upon completion of their PhD or EngD studies, recipients have the option to apply for the A STAR International fellowship for post-doctoral training, leading towards Singaporean Citizenship.


The A STAR Graduate Scholarship covers various aspects of doctoral studies, including full tuition fees, monthly sustenance allowance for housing and food, book and computer allowances, conference and thesis allowances, as well as support for up to 12 months of overseas attachment for research purposes.

Eligibility Criteria

Eligible applicants must have obtained at least a 2nd Upper-Class Honours degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline and show strong interest in a research career. Non-Singaporeans must have completed a bachelor’s degree and are required to sign a bond committing to three years of service in Singapore-based companies upon graduation, with a focus on Biomedical Sciences, Physical Sciences, or Engineering.

Application Process

Applicants can apply online through the AGS portal, and shortlisted candidates will undergo two interviews as part of the selection process. It is advisable for applicants to read the FAQs about AGS before applying.

For those seeking a straightforward PhD scholarship in Singapore, the SINGA Scholarship 2025 is also available. Interested individuals are encouraged to seize this opportunity to pursue their academic and research goals in Singapore.
