Scholars may not concurrently hold any other scholarship, fellowship or award without the prior approval from the School.

The following items are covered by the terms of the relevant scholarships:

  • Tuition fees, medical insurance fees, examination and other approved fees

The School provides for a number of grants as a form of financial assistance. Although the specific value and coverage may vary, a grant will cover tuition fees, as well as cover additional fees. More specific information on grants will be communicated to you if you are successful in your application.

LKY Fellowships (MPM only)

The LKY Fellowships are offered on a merit basis to recognise outstanding MPM candidates who have clearly demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities and are committed to public service. The Fellowship will fully finance the candidate’s education in the MPM programme. In addition to meeting the stringent criteria for entry into the MPM programme, all fellows should also demonstrate exceptional academic ability and professional distinction to receive the LKY Fellowship. They may not concurrently hold any other scholarship, fellowship, or award without prior approval from the School.

Candidates should indicate that they wish to be considered for financial aid when they submit their applications through the LKY School website
