Financial Assistance


Scholarships from Governing Churches

The governing churches recognise that it is their responsibility to assist their own students. Scholarships provided by these churches are usually sufficient to cover the students’ tuition, room and board, text books and personal expenses. These scholarships are administered by the respective churches. Applicants should refer to their own local churches or denominational agencies for advice.

1. Anglican

Anglican students of the Diocese of Singapore may speak to their own Vicars or Priests about their study plans. The parish clergy may then discuss with the Warden of St Peter’s Hall how best to jointly support the student.

The Brash Scholarships

This scholarship was established by Murray Bruce Brash who was born in Eastbourne, England in 1913 and studied law at Cambridge. Thereafter he came to Singapore to work with Allen and Gledhill, a well-known law firm. When the war broke out, he joined the Legal Branch of the Royal Air Force. After the war he resumed his partnership with Allen and Gledhill, retiring in 1959. However he was soon persuaded to continue legal practice in a private capacity until 1978. He died on 24 August 1982.

His reason for establishing a Trust for scholarships was twofold:

a) To help spread the gospel of Jesus Christ; and

b) To assist needy persons in their preparation for full-time Christian work/missions.

It was his greatest desire that through this Trust, men of sound character and academic quality will be prepared to occupy positions of leadership, ministry and mission outreach in the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The conditions for award are:

a) Applicants must be male Chinese citizens of Singapore or male Malaysian or Indonesian subjects;

b) Applicants must be of an approved Protestant denomination or background;

c) Applicants must be born-again Evangelicals of sound character;

d) Applicants must be preparing for full-time Christian work/missionary service; and

e) Applicants must be financially needy.
