Premier Scholars Programmes

NTU Premier Scholars Programmes (PSP), comprising the University Scholars Programme (NTU-USP), Renaissance Engineering Programme (REP), CN Yang Scholars Programme (CNYSP) and NTU-NIE Teaching Scholars Programme (TSP), aim to attract the high-achieving post-secondary students with outstanding co-curricular records, leadership qualities and a strong passion to contribute to society.

These programmes are specially developed for exceptional students who look forward to developing their potential through a high-quality education that goes beyond their regular undergraduate programme and prepares them well for the rising demands of the highly volatile 21st century workplace. On top of a multidisciplinary and broad-based curriculum, these students will also have personal guidance by top faculty, interdisciplinary and intensive research opportunities, overseas exposure, as well as meeting renowned Nobel Laureates and other world class leading scientists, politicians and industry leaders. Students who are under the CNYSP, USP and TSP will, upon their graduation, be awarded a special certificate in addition to their degree certificate. Students may also take up a scholarship from NTU or other organisations as PSP is not a scholarship.

Look no further: embark on an intellectual adventure of a lifetime with one of our Premier Scholars Programmes.

In my dd's scholarship journey this year, it is interesting to note that university scholarships and the industry scholarships operate on different time frame.

For instance, she was offered university scholarships and the acceptance dateline was around 2nd week of May. Towards the mid to end April, she started to get shortlist emails for test, interviews for industry scholarship. We realized that if we wanted to explore the industry scholarship, the opportunity cost would be giving up university scholarship.

In the end, we told her to accept the university scholarship which was already very attractive minus bond. Bond is good if you are graduating now and can get a stable job (in view of COVID), I suppose one need not worry about getting internship which can be competitive too. But bond might also limit future options...

Thanks for sharing.
For her scholarship applications, which component play a more significant portion in securing the scholarship? Is it the 90RP or all rounder attributes?

Frankly, I don't think it's explicit. In one of the interviews, they asked if she had expected to get perfect score which she commented that she didn't.... She was tracking towards 80th percentile in school and couldn't sit for prelims due to dengue. But our observation is that she has friends who did pretty decent results too (in mid 80s range) but didn't get shortlisted for scholarship interviews.

My dd only has CCA leadership position in sec school but not JC. But she has been in the same CCA since primary school. She also participated in some competitions representing the JC (econs/ Bio) so unsure if those helped from a full package perspective.
