hi, i applied for smu scholarships, but couple of days ago, when i logged on the online facility, and clicked on 'smu scholarship applications', it said 'no application'. before that, the page did indicate scholarships which i applied for. is this happening to anyone else?

hey i think if your smu application reads "no application" its best to check it out :)

and I think the application process is still ongoing. they offered me the scholarship bt want me to decide by 1st week of may. I'm sure they have others on their list which they want to offer it too.

That might be true! because I was offered a scholarship w/o any scholarship interview... But when I went for my faculty interview, I asked the professors about whether it was a combined interview for SMU scholarship and they said that I had to go for a separate interview for scholarship if I was shortlisted. Yup.

So I'm not really sure of how they do it. And I guess if you weren't called down for scholarship interview, it may not mean that you wont get a scholarship? Yup, so keep your phones on! and check your email regularly (spam mail too)

i have received the call of offering schlarship on 28 May.

if the scholar has fialed to meet the GPA for mantenance of the scholarship, has the schlar need to payback the tuition fee plus the 5% interest?

is everyone here who has been offered a scholarship matriculating/entering smu this year? i'm asking to find out because i received an unspecified call, which i strongly believe is from smu due to the prefix, during my bmt field camp about 3 weeks ago. emailed both the admission and enquiry departments that weekend to ascertain the nature of the call but have yet to receive a reply. and it's almost 1 june >.< i'm wondering if the call pertained to a scholarship as that would greatly influence my decision as to which uni offer i should accept..

however if scholarships are only awarded to students in their respective years of enrolment then i would be worrying unduly as my admit term is in 2011. the call could very well have been about the course offer or the tea session cum briefing. but right now i'm rather panicky and i'm booking in tmrw so i hope someone could help me out here!! (thanks!)

of course, i'm stupid for not having called them back to find out. gah.

Hi Christine, that's what the scholarship agreement states. And also the amount reimbursed for your notebook, as for the SMU scholarship. It sounds daunting, dosen't it? For the NUS's faculty scholarship, the agreement states that scholars do not need to pay back the amount given if the scholarship was terminated due to unsatisfactory GPA.

HOWEVER, that being said, the SMU scholarship agreement states that the scholar may be required to do that, at the discretion of the dean/dean of students. I think it would make sense to include that in the scholarship agreement since if it's stated that scholars do not need to pay it back if their GPA is unsatisfactory, people can simply accept the scholarship, party all day, do horribly and let the scholarship be terminated- afterall they don't have to pay anything back right? So it really makes sense for the university to decide at discretion if the scholar has to repay the sum imbursed should he/she not meet the GPA requirements.

Personally, I don't think the university would make the scholar pay if he/she really worked hard, but simply couldn't make the requirements. But of course, if a student is awarded the scholarship, I don't think this will be the case, since a student must have certain high calibre to be even offered the scholarship.

Hope this helped! I don't think the GPA requirement should be what's preventing you from taking the scholarship?

Hello sprightbarks, oh no, you should really have called them. SMU people are very nice to talk to (as compared to NUS and NTU, haha). Try to call them tomorrow or something? As for the scholarships, I think they're awarded to a student in the year they apply. As in, if you re-apply next year, you'll be considered for scholarship again that year? That's what I think. Please correct me if I'm wrong (:

Good luck anyway! But I think you should call them. Even if it's after 1st June!

hi Keanevin, thanks for your reply...

For whatever reasons, if the scholar has met the GPA in the first two years but failed to meet the GPA in the 3rd year of studies, does it means the scholar has to payback a total of 3 years scholarship amount plus compounded interest OR just the 3rd year scholarship amount (with the interest)?

That sounds scary.... you got the scholarship too? I dont think they'll ask us to payback... I mean unless you really show that you dont give a damn and get a GPA of like less than 2, they shouldnt.. they just wanna insert that clause to get those who outrageously exploit the system and make bad use of the scholarship..

When i went to the scholarship interview, the 'head' actually joked and said that of you dont wanna keep the scholarship (in order to like transfer uni or something) and you dont wanna pay up, you can flunk your exams and let us kick you out...

SO i seriously doubt that they will charge us... UNLESS you really exploit the system outrageously... I mean if I get a GPA of 3.0 and they ask me to pay up, ill probabaly sue them. LOL. =)

P.S-- I AM SO DAMN EXCITED ABOUT SMU! HOPE ITS FUN!

Haha, from what I interpreted from the agreement, it's the TOTAL amount given to you whatever it's for, plus interest. But as rockinik and I said, I don't think they'll ask you to pay if you put in hard work and effort, etc.

rockinik: I'm excited about SMU too! Which school are you going? I'm going to sch of soc sci. (:

christine
06-02-2009, 01:34 PM
i dont think we can sue them since this clause is inside the agreement and you have signed it.

christine
06-02-2009, 01:39 PM
i think it is not fair to pay the 3 years total amount if i really hard work in the first two years and have met the required GPA, but failed to met in the 3rd year.

06-03-2009, 01:37 PM
----IN MY HUMBLE OPINION----

if you are doing business + taking a double degree, you qualify for the Lee Kong Chian Scholarship Programme... for which you hold sort of a 1 in 10 chance if you qualify the grade requirements (3 H2 As and B in GP - minimum)... that, in my opinion if the MOST prestigious in SMU...

For everyone else (who is not doing business and/or not taking a double degree), its the SMU scholarship thats the most prestigious... it also offers the most in monetary terms -- up to 60k for locals and 80k for foreigners...

you can still get the SMU scholarship if you are doing biz and a double degree... the SMU scholarship is the second most prestigious for BIZ double degree students...

I dont know much about the other faculty scholarships or the 'non-freshmen' scholarships... yupp..

Hope this helps!

Cheers! =)

From what I know, we have to purchase the laptop from SMU's PC tender. You can get details here: http://www.smu.edu.sg/matriculation/2009/service_notebook.asp

If we purchase from SMU's PC tender, we get 3 years of warranty. As for accessories and 'insurance' as you said, I'm not very sure!

Hope this helped.

I'll go for either the X200 or the S6250.

Don't think i'll have much use for a tablet.

hey (: smu is really nice cos they put your scholarship interview together with your admission interview. you should receive an email asking you to go for an admission interview cum scholarship interview. the questions they ask really depends on your CV. because for mine, they basically asked me about stuff i did. my interview was with a dean and a professor and i was alone. im not sure about the applicability of this across the schools though. i know that for accountancy (the one i went for), i was supposed to be the only interviewee so im not sure for other courses for business. yupp (: have they contacted you to head down for an admission interview?

Shaynikins
04-18-2010, 03:37 PM
I have no idea how long the session will last but I believe it will be helpful for us, like what Zachary has mentioned. There is some transparency to what they expect from us to a certain extent. I would say go and check it out because scholarships (especially for me) plays a major part in my final decision of university.

It doesn't hurt to check it out, even if you are not interested because it gives you a better insight on their expectations.

My friend is also working but he took half day off for it.

Shaynikins
04-18-2010, 08:50 PM
I have no idea. Thing is, I received the email before my interview happened.

On the email, it states LKCSB Scholarship and I went on to read about it. It mentioned about us having to take on a double degree in order to be eligible for it but I have friends who only applied for a single degree and were called up for it as well.

Another friend told me that the briefing is for all the scholarships, with LKCSB being the most prestigious one.

I'm pretty confused now. But I'm going just to see what it's all about.

Hi tencharacters,

Thanks for the advice. Will definitely take that into consideration.

Did you happen to undergo the same scholarship process as well? I know last year's one they actually had the applicants to come up with a presentation and at the very last minute, they made them switch their presentations around - making them present others' work instead.

Anyhow, I'm still pretty ecstatic about the whole thing cause it's kinda different and refreshing.

I just received my "A" Levels Results this year. I have 2 friends who went for it. Both were offered. And both had the same reaction: "FREAKING RANDOM INTERVIEW" (1 got it last year, 1 got it from Early Cycle)

Well, from what I know, they had interviewees seated in isolated chairs and professors, deans and students walking around asking them the most random question on Earth and wanting to hear your reply. Just stay firm and calm :D

Anyway, are there enlisted/enlisting guys at the briefing? And was the briefing really about all types of scholarships?
I wasn't even informed to go. Haha :X (Applied for SMU scholarship)

It was conducted by the School of Biz. As long as you applied for their programmes (single or DDP) and meet their cutoffs; 3As (JC) and 3.8 (Poly), they will call you up. They basically covered for all the scholarships under their care so if you applied for SMU Scholarship, you will not be called.

I'm quite excited. Probably will be a trainwreck on that day but I will see how it goes! Thanks for the information though.

Btw, were your friends girls or international students? Cause I believe that scholarships for SMU will only be offered in the year you are matriculating.

Hey guys, mind helping out a newbie here?

i went for my SMU biz interview on 12th April (monday) and
on the 18th April (Sunday), i received a letter notifying me that i've been accepted into SMU double degree programme (biz + Soc Sci)

Yet i've not received any news at all regarding the scholarships, *of which i applied for the LKC one*

may i know if anyone can tell me whether no news = bad news? or are they staggering the batches/giving the people who are alr studying in SMU or matriculating this year the priority?

quite worried as i really want the scholarship =/

HI, i've received a double degree from smu for 2012 from my application last year, however i did not receive any information on any scholarship. Do they expect you to apply for it together with your course application or is the invitation to the scholarship interview an automatic generation by the system based on your grades?

And if i wish to apply for a scholarship this cycle, anyone knows how do i go about applying for it?

Not exactly? I think they probably offered all the 50 scholarships already but some will reject it. So when these people reject the scholarship, they start calling people for second interview that next up on the waiting list. The interview was really fast and I'm sure they probably covered all the shortlisted applicants already. Hope I helped and good luck to you:)

Went for the Law interview but I didn't get it. :( Anyway, I indicated my interest in the SMU scholarships but have yet to hear any news? To add on, when I went for the Biz tea session I asked one of the staff, and it seems like my grades are good enough to at least qualify me for a scholarship interview of some sort because she said I should have received an email regarding scholarships.. SIGH. Anyone in the same boat/with any advice???

I went for an admission cum scholarship interview for accountancy but received no news regarding the scholarship. The smu admission office picked up the call rather quickly like after a few rings so maybe you want try calling near 6? Anyway, the guy told me they will be prolly giving out all scholarships by end of next week and if you get it you will receive a call so now I guess we just have to wait till end of next week to know whether we will get it a not =x and he say to email to them if got any queries. Hope this helps!

If one were to accept an SMU scholarship but eventually change their mind and want to give it up, is there a penalty? If yes, how much is it? Or is this penalty only for certain scholarships such as the ASEAN undergrad scholarship rather than all SMU scholarships? Thanks in advance for any information provided :)

hi, jellybelly. I was once a scholar and this year, I am already offered place in SMU but with no scholarship (so I return home now) :(

First, congrats for you getting scholarship (I think, since you asked). Anyway, I don't know if you are local or foreigners, but if you are the latter, then I can only tell you this: based on my understanding, if you reject a scholarship before you accept it, no repayment asked (that's very obvious right?). But, if you already take the offer and you give up on that scholarship (i.e. you want to pay yourself or you cannot make it through their GPA requirement or you break the rules in the scholarship terms), you have to pay damage to the sponsor the entire money you have been receiving PLUS 10% of the total amount (meaning you need to pay 110% of the money you get from them). I think that's the rule across the board.

If you are very unsure, you could just approach the SMU Office of Admission (specifically I think the Office of Scholarship & Financial Aid) and ask them. Sometimes the interest rate may vary but usually it's at 10% (cannot be less than that). If not, then if you obtain the scholarship from private organisations (not administered by SMU), you ask them directly or during the contract-signing ceremony, before you confirm everything you ask the officer there.

That's all that I can say. All the best in your future endeavours in Singapore!

Yes there is a penalty, you may need to pay back what you have received from the scholarship with an interest rate of 5% per annum base on the descretion of your respective dean of school.

If you accepted the scholarship but have not begin school, there will be a $2000 administrative fine to be paid.

I heard from my friends that there are two interviews for lkc, one for nsmen who already accepted smu offer and second for the girls and the newly accepted students. The first lkc interview was 12 Jan and 2nd interview on 28th whereby he was offered on the spot. The second one from past post should be on the 30th april and most likely you will be informed around 3rd week of May for the second interview (if you are in, you will most likely be offered the scholarship). I been searching the forums and trying to find out whether smu offer the smu scholars programme to those perfect scorer only with just the admission interview, while those with minimum 3A get a shot at the LKC programme, can anyone confirm this for me?

yeap at the scholarship briefing session the professor mentioned that cut off for LKC is 3H2 As and GP B while for SMU scholars prog it's 4H2 As and GP B.

btw, if your friend was offered the scholarship on the spot then was it still an interview? Like did they ask interview-based qns or was it more of a get-to-know-you better session since they already planned to accept him?

Hi teddybruce could I clarify something? For the SMU Scholar's Programme, when you say 4h2 distinctions are required do you mean a minimum of 13 units are required? For example,
People who took 3H2s + 1H1 (and got distinctions for all), they still wouldn't stand a chance for the scholarship since that would only consist of 11 units? Sorry but I don't recall the professor specifying 4h2s as a requirement so I'mjust curious.:)

My friend was in the top 10 candidates, so he was offered on the spot, so you can say it's a get to know you session. There are two dates for the 2nd interviews, for the second day, my friend was not very certain but he heard that the prof will ask the candidates some background qns, but most likely you will be offered.

Isn't 4H2s + 3H1s (GP, PW, MT) 11 academic units? anyway you are right the professor didn't mention that a min of 11 academic units are required but my senior who took 10 AUs (3H2s + 4 H1s) didn't get called up for the interview for LKCSP neither did he get the SMUSP although he only had one B in GP.. i am guessing since a lot of people already took 11 AUs and still scored well, they would make 11 AUs a 'hidden' requirement to streamline the number of candidates?

I am not sure how Peanutbutterjelly got his info, but personally I think it took three weeks before the 2nd interview for the first lkc so judging from that, I estimate that the 2nd interview should be next week and you will receive a call by the end of this week. If Peanutbutterjelly is right then, it is most unlikely you receive a call for you to go down the next day. 2nd round elimination is very unlikely as if you are called for the second round, it means you are the top 25 in terms of ranking in the interviews. Like I say previously this is the 2nd lkc interview and most of the scholarships are reserved for girls. Anyway what is your double degree combination, as I heard they only give out one Law and Business lkc scholarship.

Hey there I took down the info from the PowerPoint slides during the scholarship briefing this year! :) but of course, the school is free to choose people out of the suggested time period. I'm a guy and I didnt get called up for the second round either. I was offered law and my second choice is accountancy... Which is probably why my chances are super slim! Didnt know only ONE law/biz scholarship is given out!! But I guess u may be right since last year only 2 people got the law/biz LKC scholarship acc to my facilitator that day.

@teddybruce if you didnt choose law then keep your hopes up high because I do know that people tend to reject the scholarship last minute. And since the prof said that they're given only 3 days to decide if they want it once they're offered, the next round of recipients should be offered by end may/early June? Just my estimate. Good luck bro

Well, since there are two major sessions for the lkc and the scholarship page states up to 50 scholarships given, so theoretically it should be 25 each, maybe slightly more for the second set.

Hi, I need a little advice here.

I am offered the SMU scholars programme but I'm unsure if I should accept it, as inviting as it sounds(I really need the tuition fee waiver), I'm afraid that it will be difficult to meet the requirements set by SMU. It writes that a student has to maintain a consistent GPA of 3.4. Is this inclusive of both degrees? I am taking a DDP in social science and econs and I am quite sure I can't make it for econs. Also, in any case that my scholarship is withdrawn by the school due to my inadequacy in meeting GPA requirements, I would have to repay the school whatever they have given + 5% interest per annum. Is this inclusive of school fees too? This would also mean suffering a net loss (a heavy one esp to my family) as compared to not accepting the offer. Yes, I understand that accepting it is like taking risk, but returns are high if I strike.

Any opinions are welcomed!

pokkaGT
05-23-2013, 06:55 PM
It is better to have 1 good degree than 2 average degrees. The way I see, doing DDP increases your chances of getting good GPA since you can always drop one of them. The question you are asking is effectively asking is: "how hard is SMU?". The question is extremely subjective and is up to the individual's ability.

Just ask yourself honestly if you really need the scholarship. Freeing up a slot may help another student who is in greater need.

You do not have to repay the school even if you fail to meet the requirement, worst case scenario you will drop out of the programme and will have to pay your usual fees. You only have to pay if you accept the scholarship and change your mind and want to go to a different school. DDP is not twice the workload like the name suggests and econs for uni is more maths intensive so if you got A for A level Maths, it should not be a problem. :)

From what I read, the Smu Scholars Programme has a 4 H2 A requirement, most likely you will qualify for the Lkc programme. You will only be notified on your ord year so be patient and best of luck getting the scholarship.

Hi, does anyone know if the 1.8K notebook grant given by the LKCSP is for the notebook only or does it also include add-ons (like extra battery, upgrade etc)?

Also, we don't have to purchase from SMU's vendors right? Because I am planning to get it during the IT fair rather than from the vendors LOL.

Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks in advance! ;);)

You will need to purchase from the school notebook vendors. This is to prevent conflict of interest. The 1.8k will also cover the addons that come along with the notebook assuming your notebook + addon is 1.8k or less

I think that is not true. I've asked CSD and they say you can buy your laptop outside. For the 2013 scholars, you can actually buy your laptop now, you just need to keep the receipt and claim it from CSD. This is from what I have heard from two separate occasions from the CSD people.

It is recommended that you buy from school notebook vendors though, because they give discounts. If you are looking for very popular notebooks such as the Macbook, you will be better off getting it from school notebook vendors.

I am unsure what the notebook grant covers, but it should cover your notebook (including upgrades to the storage/ram), but not external accessories (carrying case, mouse, etc). It will be best if you give CSD a call and ask :).

I'm in the same boat as you, waiting for IT Fair, more haswell-powered laptops will be available then and it will push down the prices of older generation laptops as well.

Ah my bad. For IS students it is recommended to buy from the school since you will require a different specification for your laptop as compared to other schools. The grant does cover external accessories if they are an addon option for your laptop unless they change the rule this year.
