Scholar’s testimonials

Approximately 50 per cent of our students receive scholarships or some form of financial aid, and this is projected to remain as the key enabler for students from the region to seek public policy education at the School. Help our students make a positive difference to their societies and to the world at large by sponsoring their studies.

    The OCBC scholarship gave me the opportunity to study at the Lee Kuan Yew School, which is one of the best public policy schools in Asia. I have increased my knowledge about other Asian countries… [and] broadened my view towards the world.

    I chose to enrol in this programme to enrich my knowledge and to contribute back to my country and the region. I purposefully chose the LKY School because of the reputation of the school and the diversity of the classroom environment where I can learn from classmates from all over the world… Without the scholarship, my dream would never come true.

    I dare say that the scholarship literally changed my life. Being able to join the LKY School was a turning point in my life. It has impacted me in my way of thinking, my behaviour and values… I discovered not only a new country but this whole experience revealed to me who I really am.

    The Spice Global Scholarship has been the best thing that happened in my life. I have always had the aspiration of studying outside India at a world-class institution. Through this generous scholarship, this dream has been fulfilled. I learnt things that I always wanted to, interacting with great minds that have broadened my horizons immensely and acquiring a new way of looking at and understanding policy challenges.
