FAQ

What are the critical criteria for a GIC-MENDAKI Scholarship Applicant?

At GIC, we value qualities such as intellectual curiosity, interpersonal skills, leadership, problem-solving and decision-making skills.

Are there specific undergraduate courses GIC looks out for or requires?

At GIC, we firmly believe the diversity of perspectives, experiences and ideas are vital to thriving performance. We see education as a training of the mind and self. Our scholars come from a wide range of fields, including but not limited to Economics, Engineering, Sciences, and Arts.

Are there limited places for scholarships each year?

There is no set limit to scholarship placements each year. Reviews and acceptance are dependent on the suitability of our candidates.

Is a perfect academic score crucial to becoming a GIC-MENDAKI Scholar?

Excellent academic and co-curricular records are essential, but perfect scores are unnecessary. We review your candidacy holistically and comprehensively, beyond scores and results.

Do I need excellent knowledge of finance/investment-related terms to be selected?

Interest and understanding in Finance, though helpful, is not necessary. There will be opportunities provided to equip you with the skills through boot camps, structured internships etc.

How relevant must my university course of study be to my everyday work? Will it enable me or limit me later in my career? 

Our people come from a variety of backgrounds spanning Economics and Finance, the Sciences, Engineering, Computing and Law. The focus is less on your pre-requisite knowledge and more on your mental agility in picking up and adapting to new things quickly. There may be a steeper learning curve at the beginning should your course not have any touchpoints with Finance. We encourage all our scholars to explore and gain exposure to Finance and Investing, both within and outside of their academic courses.

What will my career progression be at GIC? 

GIC invests globally in more than 40 countries with ten global offices. Our scholars can look forward to job rotations and overseas posting opportunities in your time at GIC, depending on your interest, contributions and business needs.

How many rounds of interviews are there? What’s the set-up at each interview? 

Candidates will have different experiences. In general, candidates will go through a combination of online assessments, interviews and activity-based assessments. You will also meet with senior management in the final panel interview.

What advice do you have for those exploring their scholarship options? 

We encourage students to consider the type of career they see themselves in when choosing a scholarship. Find out as much as possible about the organisation to guide your decision.
