ICA Scholarships

The ICA Scholarships, introduced from 2017, offer promising individuals a meaningful and challenging career in ICA and the wider Home Team. ICA scholars can look forward to directly contributing to Singapore's homefront security through safeguarding our borders - our first line of defence against security and immigration threats. They will be groomed for key leadership positions through structured postings across staff and line functions within ICA. Given the diverse range of functions within ICA spanning checkpoint clearance, maritime operations, intelligence, enforcement, immigration and national registration, there are many demanding job responsibilities that will challenge and develop scholarship holders.

ICA scholarship and award holders will be sponsored for undergraduate studies in overseas or local universities, depending on their calibre and tier of scholarships awarded.
