Just FYGI, I heard from my tutor that some scholarship providers expect you to work for them straight after graduation, which gives you little, if any time to do the bar exam.

Your salary may not be compromised just because you are not working in a law firm, since you would probably be doing managerial roles in the company etc.

Take this with a pinch of salt though.

I believe the avg should be at 3. Since there are 28 participating organisations, an average of 3 would mean 80+ scholars which is a lot. :)

PS: PSA has finished their interviews.

i'm afraid every individual company holds their own deed signing so you will have to ask your company's HR on that.

Uhm I wonder if I can still ask about the scholarship here??

Ah I got a call from the National Arts Gallery for an interview but I was wondering if my uni course would be unattractive to them. I'm going for NUS biz in the end and I'm wondering if a biz student is of value to the Art Gallery. Would they want someone who majors in industrial design or design related courses?

Not at all. Running an art gallery of this scale is not a simple task and would require business knowledge too. Someone from an design-related background might not be that well-prepared to managed finances, handle HR matters, prepare marketing plans etc...

Actually, you need a Master's to manage an art gallery. It is okay to pursue a Bachelor's in business first but eventually, you must have a Master's.

In any case, you must already have a passion in the arts to get the scholarship. All the best :)

Actually, you need a Master's to manage an art gallery.

That's totally not true. Many of them in singapore do not have a masters. Though, if you wish to do a masters, NHB/NAC is very generous with scholarships. Note - arts management is a different track from curatorialship.
