Singapore – ICAO Young Aviation Professionals Programme 2020/2021 Scholarships for study in Singapore (Fully Funded)

Application Deadline: January 3rd 2021

In 2001, Singapore and ICAO jointly established a Developing Countries Training Programme (DCTP), which is sponsored by the Singapore Government and administered by the ICAO Technical Cooperation Bureau, to provide
fellowships for specialized training programmes conducted by the Singapore Aviation Academy (SAA). It was further extended and expanded in 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016. In 2013, a new Scholarship for Diploma in Civil Aviation Management was introduced.

In response to overwhelming and continued demand, the DCTP was extended and expanded for another three years from 2019 to 2022 and will provide 330 Fellowships and 10 Scholarships. In 2019, SAA has added a new Scholarship for Diploma in Aviation Safety Management. A total of 110 Fellowships and 6 Scholarships will be available in 2020/2021 and we welcome applications from government
officials of developing ICAO Member States.
