Music Elective Scholarships (MES)
To develop and recognize students talented in music, MOE offers the Music Elective Scholarships to encourage academically able and musically talented students to pursue
International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) Higher Level Music under the Music Elective Programme (MEP).
Selection of students for the scholarships is based on the successful enrolment of the student in the MEP after the JAE, the student’s performance in the GCE ‘O’ Level
Examination (their L1R5 performance and a Grade ‘A1’ in Music) or an equivalent
school’s internal examinations (for IP students) and his/ her performance at the selection interviews scheduled in April. To be considered for the Scholarship, applicants must be Singapore Citizens.
Short-listed candidates are required to submit a personal portfolio comprising of either
(i) a 3-5 minute videotaped performance of a piece of music of their choice or (ii) a portfolio comprising 2 to 3 contrasting works with accompanying audio recording of these (if any) and thereafter, attend an interview.
The scholarship is valued at $1,000 per annum. It is tenable for 2 years, subject to satisfactory progress at the end of Year 5. Successful applicants are not required to enter into a bond to serve the Singapore Government. Successful applicants must offer IBDP Higher Level Music as one of their subjects.
