NTU Scholarship: “Overseas Students Will Be Prioritized”

Dear AllSingaporeStuff,

I saw someone sharing this screenshot and it made me very angry. I understand why local universities need foreign students. That’s where a lot of their income comes from, because foreign students have to pay higher school fees.

I also understand why companies like to sponsor students and give them full scholarships, because the students will be bonded to them after and be an asset.

What I don’t understand, is this kind of full scholarships coming from the local universities themselves. Not only do they cover their school fees, they help pay for these students’ travel, accommodation, and computer allowance.

Some more why must they say they prioritize overseas students. Shouldn’t they prioritize local students more first? I really worry for our future generations.
