The GKS scholarship was established to honor former Singapore Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Goh Keng Swee, who fostered Singapore’s economic development and its growth as a reputable international financial center.

Each year, the scholarship is awarded to outstanding individuals from the Asia-Pacific region to pursue undergraduates studies at local universities in Singapore.

Those qualified will be awarded a maximum of four years of undergraduate study in Singapore. Their academic performance will also be reviewed annually. The scholarship will also provide roundtrip economy airfare, tuition and other compulsory fees, maintenance, hostel and settling-in allowance.
