The Ong Chit Chung Memorial Scholarship is set up in memory of the late Dr Ong Chit Chung. He was a well-known Member of Parliament of the Jurong GRC (Group Representation Constituency) and NUS Alumnus (1972), who studied and taught at the Department of History. He had cared for and contributed much to the cause of education.
The fund will support a full scholarship for a 4-year honours degree in History, at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
The award of this scholarship will commence with the AY2012 cohort.
Applications open from December for the freshmen cohort of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. All hard copy documents are to be submitted. Due to the prestige associated with scholarships, late applicants or incomplete forms may not be considered.
Value of Award
The award will cover the Scholarship holder’s tuition fees (excluding the MOE Tuition Grant) for the entire undergraduate candidature.
The Scholarship will be awarded in the second semester of the Scholarship holder’s candidature.
