Scholarships

We have several MBA scholarships available to help admitted participants finance their MBA studies. You may browse through the list of scholarships below for information about eligibility and application deadlines for each scholarship before applying to them. 

Scholarship results are announced at certain periods, typically not together with the admission offer, as scholarship selection involves another step or decision, especially if it involves external parties, as in the case of the APEC, ASEAN, and OCBC scholarships.
