Ministry of Defence (MINDEF Scholarship Centre)

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.
