SJI International announces brand new scholarships for Singaporeans

Lasallian Scholarships are available for up to 4 Singaporeans from any of the Lasallian primary schools in Singapore, for a 6-year term commencing in 2020.

St. Joseph’s Institution International is expanding their successful Scholarship Programme to provide four full scholarships for deserving Singaporean children by introducing a 6-year Lasallian Scholarship Programme for students from any of the Lasallian primary schools in Singapore. The scholars will join SJI International at the commencement of their secondary school life in 2020. They will be able to experience and benefit from the high-quality holistic education that SJI International provides.

The Lasallian Scholarship Programme has been designed by SJI International's Scholarship Committee to mark the 300th anniversary of the death of St John Baptist de La Salle (7 April 1719), the founder of the De La Salle Brothers, who have conducted schools in Singapore since 1852. SJI International celebrates the impact of the mission he started and renews its commitment to the vitality of our Lasallian heritage and educational mission. Today over one mission students attend Lasallian schools in 80 countries of the world.

Mr Kenneth Li, Chairman of SJI International’s Scholarship Committee, said: “We are honoured to announce the introduction of the 6-year Lasallian Scholarship, a reflection of the school’s mission to help young people learn how to learn, and learn how to live. This scholarship enables SJI International to expand its efforts to reach out to the Lasallian community in Singapore as an expression of our desire to be a community united in heart, commitment, and life.”

Since opening its doors only 12 years ago, SJI International has awarded scholarships equivalent to an impressive $18 million in fees and associated costs which have transformed the lives of 248 students, in fulfilment of its Lasallian mission to care for the Last, the Lost and the Least.

The value of the SJI International scholarships is amply demonstrated by the fact that since its inception, 10 of their scholars had achieved the perfect IB score of 45 points and 98% of them were awarded scholarships for university studies. These results demonstrate that scholarships are awarded not solely on merit but are granted to those students who can most benefit most from the SJI International education.

Br. Lawrence Humphrey, Brother President of SJI International, said: "We are blessed and honoured to be able to extend the opportunity of an SJI International education to even more deserving and qualified young people in our community, empowering them to make a real difference in Singapore and the world."
