The Celia Moh Scholarships are prestigious and highly competitive, therefore, each university is asked to forward a very small number of pre-screened candidates to the scholarship for consideration.

Each school has its own method for selecting its candidates. You should speak to your school’s Celia Moh Scholarship representative if you are interested in applying for a Celia Moh Scholarship.

Only select academic majors, departments or programs of study are approved by the Scholarship.  Your school’s representative can give you more details.
