Scholarships in Singapore for Indian Students

Note: The scholarships mentioned below are of an earlier time when the article was published. Candidates are requested to check the latest rates before applying for scholarships for studying abroad. 

Singapore, strategically located in the Asian Pacific region, has quickly gained acceptance as a study abroad destination for students from across the world. Such has been its advent that a lot of Top Universities of the World have opened up a Campus in Singapore to facilitate the Asian student population. No wonder than that a large number of Indian students and executives have started to look towards Singapore as a favourable study abroad destination. And while the Universities in Singapore offer a cheaper option, the costs are still considerable. With a comparable cost of living, scholarships add to the many advantages of study in Singapore.
