AGS is a collaboration between A*STAR Graduate Academy (A*GA) and NGS. It comprises a four-year PhD study tenable at NUS and the PhD degree is awarded by NUS.
Successful candidates who are Permanent Residents or non-Singaporeans are expected to take up Singapore citizenship.
Upon completion of their four-year studies, scholars are encouraged to apply for post-doc to widen their exposure before they return for deployment. Post-doc positions are awarded on a case-by-case, competitive basis, depending on the strengths and merits of the post-doc application.
Full details can be found over here.
Successful candidates will be given support for up to four years of academic pursuit, leading to a PhD. Award is renewable on an annual basis, subject to good progress.
