Ministry of Defence / Singapore Armed Forces

The mission of MINDEF and the Singapore Armed Forces is to enhance Singapore’s peace and security through deterrence and diplomacy, and should these fail, to secure a swift and decisive victory over the aggressor.

MINDEF/SAF scholarships are offered to those who are willing to take up the challenge and answer the call of defending our nation. Taking up the MINDEF/SAF scholarship is not just about seeking a job or a career but it is about a lifelong mission to contribute to the peace and security of Singapore.
