The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (Singapore) launched the A STAR India Youth Scholarships in 2004. In the last 4 years, we have received overwhelming response from Indian applicants.

Current A STAR India Youth scholars have arrived in Singapore annually since 2005 and are now doing well in their studies.

We are pleased to offer A Star India Youth Scholarships this year to outstanding students for 4 years of studies in Singapore, leading to the Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education (Advanced) Level or equivalent, an international qualification widely recognised in many countries.

Secondary 3 Level studies will commence in January 2009 at selected Singapore schools for successful candidates, and scholars will sit for the GCE 'A' Level Examinations or equivalent at the end of Pre-University 2.

A dynamic and global city, Singapore offers high education standards and rich opportunities for research and higher learning. More than just excellent grades, we look for individuals who want to make a difference with their zest for Science.
