DUO-Singapore Exchange Fellowship

The Asia-Europe Meeting's (ASEM) DUO Fellowship Fund aims to promote student exchanges between European and Asian ASEM member countries. Under this fund, the DUO-Singapore Exchange Fellowship is awarded by the Singapore Government to Singapore and ASEAN students studying in the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), National University of Singapore (NUS) and Singapore Management University (SMU).


The Award is also open to students from European ASEM countries (who come from universities with fee waiver arrangements with NTU, NUS and SMU). The Award, based on merit, is for a pair of exchanges between a university in Singapore and its respective partner university in Europe in any academic field. Each student will be awarded a maximum of 4,000 Euros for one semester of up to four months, which covers airfare, accommodation and living expenses.
There is no bond imposed by the Singapore Government for the Award, which is open to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Participating in any Exchange Programme offers an excellent opportunity for the student to make friends, to build networks and learn about other cultures. It also gives the student a chance to experience the host country's cultural diversity, its stimulating cosmopolitan environment and explore the countries around it while still pursuing the undergraduate or postgraduate studies. The following students can attest to this:
"Participation in the student exchange programme was extremely beneficial, because on top of the subsistence (finance etc.), I learnt a lot about Asia, and particularly Singaporean culture, people, society and studying / business environment. I naturally also learnt a lot about myself during my five months stay abroad, and created many new contacts with both Asian and European people. It also made me consider Singapore as a potential future place to work and live."
