Interim scholarships 
In 2018, SAS will celebrate 45 years of Interim Semester.  Our alumni repeatedly tell us that their Interim Semester trips were some of their most meaningful experiences at SAS. With 65% of our current families personally paying tuition and fees and with the changing financial landscape in Singapore, we are offering Interim scholarships to students to ensure that all SAS students can have the same opportunities. Consider making a gift to the Interim Scholarship fund.
