In recognition of academic excellence and leadership qualities, SUSS offers scholarships to outstanding students pursuing their undergraduate studies at the University. Each scholarship is awarded for the minimum period required to complete the full programme of study and will cover 100% of the course fee (inclusive of government subsidy), including course materials, examination fee, and other compulsory fees.
In line with our commitment and continuous efforts to promote lifelong learning, we offer Study Awards to deserving students who may otherwise not be able to upgrade their knowledge and capabilities due to financial constraints. Study awards are given to students with good academic results.
We are committed to providing a quality education for all our students and to ensure that no deserving student is denied admission because of financial difficulties. SUSS awards Study Grants to eligible students who are financially disadvantaged. The Study Grants will be used for the payment of course fees for the semester in which the Grants are awarded.
Awards and Book Prizes
Academic prizes are awarded annually to the top graduating students and may include cash, book prizes, medals and plaques. These awards are named after their respective donors and will be presented at the SUSS’ annual convocation ceremony.
SUSS Spirit Award
This Award recognises and honours Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) full-time students who have consistently demonstrated the “Heart” component of our educational philosophy – which is to nurture well-rounded graduates with the 3H’s “Head, Heart and Habit”. At SUSS, a graduate with “Heart” is one who is socially conscious with a desire to make positive changes in society.
The SUSS Spirit Award is not open for application, but by nomination only. That we have received nominations from external organisations is an indication of our students’ contributions to, and impact on, the community.
Overseas Experiential Learning Trip
In view of the ever-evolving global environment, it is imperative that our students develop relevant capabilities and competencies so as to be able to respond swiftly to both the challenges and opportunities in Asia and around the world. Hence, the overseas experience in the form of Overseas Study Mission, Global Service-Learning project, Summer School or Work Attachment, is a mandatory graduation requirement at SUSS.
Project Grants (Service-Learning/Community Engagement Programmes)
At SUSS, Community Engagement is conceived as an integral part of the University’s learning ecology and as a process to empower students to further develop and act on their sense of social responsibility, grounded in real-world ideas and practices to contribute meaningfully to society.
The Project Grants will, among other areas, be utilised as subsidies for training costs and expenses incurred by our financially disadvantaged students in the organisation of events and initiatives related to their Community Engagement Projects which are designed with the aim of having a positive impact on the community.
Community Engagement is a mandatory graduation requirement for SUSS full-time degree programmes, and our students are expected to research, discuss and propose a Community Engagement Programme in consultation with our community partners. Our students’ Community Engagement Programmes can be generally categorised into six sectors; namely Ageing and Elderly; Community Building; Diversity and Inclusion; Environment and Sustainability; Health and Wellbeing; and Youth & Children.
