Hwa Chong Students Awarded PSC Scholarships For Holistic Excellence

20 Jul 2018

The Class of 2017 achieved excellent academic results by attaining a mean University Admission Point (UAP) of 87.5. Having served an average of 112 hours in community service, the class of 2017 exemplifies the best of both academic excellence and service with compassion.

This year, a total of 28 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.

Three Hwa Chongians were also awarded the Singapore Armed Forces Scholarship. Continuing a tradition of excellence, Hwa Chong students have once again garnered more than 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.
