I'm afraid I don't know any first-hand information. Here is what KPMG has to say on its website:

A KPMG Scholarship will make a difference in your future. It'll open doors for your career.

The KPMG Scholarship gives you unique opportunities to help you grow professionally and personally. It will lay a great foundation for your career with a leading provider of professional services. Since 1987, the KPMG Scholarship has nurtured many successful scholars. Many have become outstanding professionals in the various fields of expertise. You can be one of them too.

We are looking for aspiring talents who are keen to join us in the fields of audit, tax and advisory. You should possess outstanding academic records and completed your 'A' levels, diploma or currently in your first year of undergraduate studies.

And of course, you must also possess a passion for life, a desire to learn and the ambition to reach the top!

Experience the KPMG Scholarship

In addition to the sponsorship of your undergraduate studies, you can also look forward to a unique scholarship experience. Right from the start, with our involvement in your career development and performance management, you can plan your path to achieve your goals and aspirations.

Mentorship - The KPMG family is an environment that is open, friendly and supportive. From day one, you will be assigned to a mentor who will extend a helping hand and provide a listening ear during the course of your studies, and in your career with KPMG. You learn from experienced mentors willing to share valuable knowledge and insights on business.

Internships - Internships will give you a glimpse of KPMG. You will get a taste of what it is like to work with us. You may also have the opportunity to go for overseas internships, and be exposed to our global network of firms and network with other KPMG professionals of different backgrounds and nationalities.

Global Opportunities - As part of our Global Opportunities program, you will be given the option to consider both internal rotations and overseas secondment opportunities. This will help you gain a more holistic perspective of KPMG.

Diverse Exposure - KPMG takes on an industry-focused approach to better serve our clients, so you will have the opportunity to work on various assignments and serve clients in a diverse scope of industries.

The scholarship award will include the cost of tuition fees at NTU / SMU / NUS, overseas exchange loans, overseas exchange allowance, books and computer allowances. A bond with KPMG commences upon graduation.

To qualify for the KPMG Scholarship, you should:

• Be Singaporean or a Singapore Permanent Resident.
• Have a consistent academic track record of excellence at both "O" and "A" levels / Diploma, or equivalent (e.g. International Baccalaureate).
• Be embarking on your studies for a Bachelor of Accountancy degree at a local tertiary institution. Those who have completed their first year of studies of the Accountancy degree at a local tertiary institution will be considered accordingly.
• Be actively involved in co-curricular activities either in school or in the community.
• Have excellent communication skills, demonstrate a high degree of initiative, maturity and enthusiasm.
• Exude self-confidence and determination to succeed.
Disclaimer: Any advice offered by myself or other moderators / forum members on this forum is just that - mere advice. Neither BrightSparks nor we give any illusion that the information provided is definitive, and take no responsibility for any consequences.

Say hi to us here!
