thank you so much=)
standard stuff, besides grade they'll be focusing alot on yr cca.

just pass the uni's exams and maintain good conduct. need to send them uni result slip every year. other than that no other special conditions to keep the scholarship

how do we even apply for the OCBC Scholarship? I don't see any link to an application form that we have to fill up. Furthermore, the website does not seem to be updated since it says that "application for 2005 awards is now closed."

Default OCBC scholarship

HI all! I'm a Year1 Ntu undergraduate. Can i still apply for OCBC scholarship?
Does OCBC prefer to give scholarship to students who are more oriented towards chinese culture and stuff? As the name implies...

i'm not sure about current undergraduate, perhaps you can call them up to verify

and to yr second qn, absolute NO. it has got nothing to do with chinese culture, so don't worry abt it

btw, my friend who is also an OCBC scholar is a Malay.

Hi King

REalised that there's the University results segment in the application. So shld be applicable for Undergraduates also. I have applied for it. Any idea on when they will call up ppl for interview? And also, how will they inform the candidates? By phone or email?

Many thanks!!!

hi all,

jus wondering if any seniors can give interview tips. ocbc is a bond-less scholarship, hence qns pertaining to "how u can contribute to ocbc" is not very applicable. so wad else can we expect?
thanks.
