Has your experience with the SAFRA Bond-Free Education Scheme encourage you to check out other benefits SAFRA has for its members? If so, share with us how!

To be honest, I did not know much about SAFRA before this… pardon me please (laugh out loud). But since I have had my SAFRA membership renewed and downloaded the app, I am absolutely amazed by what SAFRA has to offer. In fact, I terminated my membership with my current gym and joined EnergyOne Gym at SAFRA Yishun!

What are some of the other benefits that you have enjoyed as a SAFRA member?

The random offers that appear in the wallet of the app. As of now I have enjoyed the $1 Treat twice and redeemed the SAFRA points for meal vouchers… I love to eat (hahaha)!

Prior to applying, how did you learn about the SAFRA Bond-Free Education Scheme?

I first heard about the SAFRA Bond-Free Education Scheme from my friend while serving in the Army as a regular. To our amazement, we are both now Award Recipients!

Share with us your journey and experience when applying for the sponsorship.

The process was relatively easy and smooth; I submitted my application close to the application deadline and was scheduled for an interview within the next three days. During the interview, all the interviewers were extremely friendly and approachable as it was two-way communication. I also had a great time conversing with them. Approximately two months after the interview, SAFRA sent me a congratulatory email informing me that I was awarded the SAFRA Sponsorship Award.

What did you think clinched the sponsorship for you?

If you ask me, I believe that my passion and desire for self-improvement, along with clear career goals, boosted my chance to clinch the award.
