Hwa Chong Students Awarded PSC Scholarship

19 Jul 2019

The Class of 2017 achieved excellent academic results by attaining a mean University Admission Point (UAP) of 87.5. Demonstrating holistic excellence, 300 Hwa Chong students from the class of 2017, more than a quarter of the cohort, were also awarded the Diploma with Distinction. This year, a total of 23 out of 93 scholarships were awarded to Hwa Chong students by the Public Service Commission (PSC). The prestigious PSC Scholarship is awarded to “people with integrity” and a “strong commitment to the public service”, with many PSC scholars becoming leaders in the civil service. Similarly, our wish is for every Hwachongian to contribute and serve society, by effecting social change and upholding the values of the nation.

In addition this year, 2 Hwachongians were awarded the Singapore Police Force Scholarship (SPFS), one of which is also the first female recipient of the SPF scholarship since it was inaugurated. Continuing a tradition of excellence, Hwa Chong students have once again been conferred close to a quarter of all scholarships awarded by PSC, a testament to Hwa Chong’s commitment to holistic excellence.

We would like to congratulate the following Hwa Chong alumni and their teachers for all their hard work. We also wish our alumni the best as they continue their studies.
