Default Difference between Singapore Government Scholarship and Singapore Merit Scholarship?

Hi all, my friend is currently considering to apply a scholarship to the Ministry of Home Affairs, which is, in other words, a scholarship that will lead you to a career in either the police force, civil defence force, prison service or central narcotics bureau. He is considering to study overseas in the UK. Question is there are two scholarships which appear to be similar:
- Singapore Government Scholarship (SGS)
- Singapore Merit Scholarship (SMS)

So what are the difference between the two scholarships? Which should be the better option to apply?
Your help is much appreciated!!!!

The Singapore Scholarship was launched by then-Prime Minister of Singapore Mr Goh Chok Tong at the 6th ASEAN Summit in December 1998.
Each year, a small group of students from ASEAN countries are awarded the Singapore Scholarship to pursue a full-time undergraduate degree in a wide range of courses (except for Medicine, Dentistry, Architecture and Law) at one of Singapore’s universities – the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), the National University of Singapore (NUS) or the Singapore Management University (SMU). The duration of the Scholarship is for three to four years, depending on the course of study.
Applicants must be endorsed by their respective governments, and the scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis on academic merit.
