The DSTA Scholarship is the premier scholarship in defence science and technology. Two scholars share with us how the scholarship has paved the way towards fulfilling careers for them.

The DSTA Scholarship provides a fully-sponsored undergraduate education in selected fields of study at top local and overseas universities.
It gives scholars diverse opportunities to pursue challenging careers not just in the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA), but also in the other organisations that make up the Defence Technology Community .
Behind the doors
For Ong Shin Rong and Eugene Ang, choosing the DSTA Scholarship has opened the doors to an extremely fruitful and fulfilling career.
27-year-old Eugene, an Engineer with the C4I Development Programme Centre, waxes lyrical about his time so far with DSTA.
“It is truly a career like no other,” he enthuses, “one that is full of challenges, yet is highly rewarding as you know that your vital contribution truly makes a difference to our nation.”
