For students graduate research students who are awarded Research Scholarship, Research Studentship, Lee Kong Chian Graduate Scholarship, President’s Graduate Fellowship, or SMA Graduate Fellowship at SMART, please note the following:
The award will begin from the commencement date of the semester or the date of enrolment, whichever is later. The stipend for the first month will be pro-rated as follows:
1st month stipend = Number of scholarship days/Total number of working days* in that month x Stipend amount. (*Working days exclude Saturdays and Sundays but include public/university holidays.)
The pro-rated stipend for the first month is usually paid on the 18th of that month if the student registers within the stipulated enrolment period. Subsequent monthly stipends will be paid on the 18th of each month.
To avoid any delay in the disbursement of stipend, please update your credit bank account details via MyISIS as soon as possible. If you do not provide your bank account details, you will not receive your stipend.
Please note that the mandatory miscellaneous fees payable for the semester will be deducted from the first month’s stipend.
