How to Apply
Students interested in need-based awards should choose "Yes" when asked if they "intend to apply for need-based scholarships" in the Yale-NUS admissions application or the Common Application. All students who are shortlisted for an interview and who answer this question with "Yes" will be sent a brief application that asks about student and family income, family size, and any additional financial considerations.
