Abstract: Scholarships have been offered in Singapore since the late 1800’s, with the earliest conventional form of it given out in 1950 known as the Colombo Plan Scholarship (PSC, 2007). Since then, scholarships have burgeoned in number, with 58 organisations handing out more than 500 scholarships a year. Government scholarships have also since gained a certain brand of prestige. Coupled with the nation’s results-oriented education system, Singapore has produced a scholar class that has attracted as much success as it has controversy.
