Six Singapore students have been awarded a bond-free scholarship from the French government.
The scholarship covers air tickets, accommodation and tuition fees, and is part of the French government’s Bienvenue En France, or Welcome to France, strategy. It aims to bring 500,000 international students to the country by 2027, said a spokesman for the French Embassy in Singapore.
Miss Xenia Chan, 23, is one of six Singaporeans who were awarded the scholarship. She plans to build a career in the world of international diplomacy. She graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) this year with a bachelor’s degree in global studies and is now at Sciences Po university in Paris pursuing a Master in International Governance and Diplomacy.
