About the scholarship

The SPH Journalism Scholarship is open to all fields of study (except medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, architecture, or law) in both local and overseas universities.

Scholars will be given internship opportunities to gain exposure and experience in a rotation of jobs across the different parts of the organisation, working hand in hand with experienced journalists, editors and other mentors on projects that will foster quality and credible journalism in the digital era. Outstanding scholars will also be groomed for top leadership positions within the company.

We are offering full-term scholarships for recent A-Level, Diploma, International Baccalaureate (IB) or equivalent qualifications (e.g., NUS high school diploma) graduates and mid-term scholarships for current undergraduates.
