MINDEF Scholarship Centre (MSC) was established on 3 Nov 1999 as a one-stop information and liaison centre to assist prospective scholars on all issues and matters pertaining to the premier MINDEF/SAF Scholarships.

As a key resource centre for the premier MINDEF/SAF scholarships, MSC seeks to continually provide various platforms of information exchange concerning its range of scholarships and MINDEF/SAF careers to interested candidates. Some of these platforms include hosting events like Tea Sessions, Career Talks and various internship/attachment programmes.
