    • Hi to all! (:

      Just have a few queries about application to rsaf and saf academic scholarship.. hope you guys can help me out with this (:

      basically i am interested signing on for a pilot. medically fit, i suppose - 165cm, eyesight about a hundred degrees in both eyes, napfa has more often than not been a gold. was from syfc, but only completed phase 1 due to commitment issues.. i took my mapas and compass testing in nov 2008, only to fail compass. they offered me the wso c3 vocation but i turned down the offer as i decided to retake the compass again 2.5 years later (may 2011?). i am a third year student in mi, which means i am taking my a level this year.

      i am considering overseas universities such as ucla for my uni education.. and hence would like to apply for the saf academic scholarship.. i believe i am not eligible for the saf merit scholarship because i don't have the required 11 credits (3h2 4h1 only)..

      1) when do i reapply for rsaf again? i don't want to seem like a pain in the ass to the recruitment guys, really.

      2) do i apply for the scholarship on a seperate occassion? or does that come after signing the bond (assuming all goes well)?

      3) how long does the scholarship take to be approved? for me, no scholarship = no overseas study, because my family isn't that rich to self-sponsor me for usa university studies.. i don't want to miss one year of school just because i haven't confirmed my financial status in case it doesnt go through.

      4) i am a retainee. does that affect my chances in application/interview? likewise, does that affect my scholarship chances? my results only started picking up after i retained..

      yup, guess that will be all the queries i have for now. thank you guys for your kind advice in advance ((:

    • Just for Everyone information who is deciding to sign-on for RSAF.

      They are looking only for ppl Engineering (Dip, NITEC)

      They stated their educational requirement in here:
      http://www.tp.edu.sg/reference_guide.pdf

      if you are deciding on ADSS, AOSS, Senior Tech... like me who have no engineering field, I think we can forget it.
